Politics and Disabilities

 

I wanted to share with you a website created by The American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD) that was sent   to me via the New York State Developmental Disabilities Planning Council e-bulletin. 

 
They have established a webpage on disability issues and the 2008 Presidential Election.
 
A collaboration of AAPD, the National Council on Independent Living (NCIL), Self-Advocates Becoming Empowered (SABE), and ADAPT developed a set of questions which were posed to the currently announced presidential candidates. Responses have been coming in over the last few weeks. Additional responses will be posted as they are received.  See the link below to see the candidates' views:
