The Wisconsin Disability Vote Coalition is releasing Voting Rights Are Human Rights: In Our Own Voices. This document shares the voices of voters with disabilities and their allies who are concerned about voting bills recently approved by the Wisconsin State Legislature. The bills will create new barriers and impact the voting rights of hundreds of thousands of Wisconsinites with a disability, older adults and other voters.
We are releasing this new resource as we honor the 31st anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, one of America’s most comprehensive pieces of civil rights legislation. The ADA Anniversary provides an opportunity to celebrate accomplishments in advancing disability rights, and look towards a future where the goals of the ADA are fully realized, and people with disabilities have a full and equal opportunity to vote.
