EveryLibrary has announced a new partnership with the American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD) to bring National Disability Voter Registration Week (NDVRW) 2017 to libraries across the country. NDVRW 2017 takes place July 17-21 and is AAPD's second annual program to make voter registration services for people with disabilities easier and more pervasive. Your library can sign on to to participate through programming, outreach, public education, and voter registration partnerships or on-site services this summer by adding your library to this list on the EveryLibrary Action site. All partner libraries that include their business address will receive a free digital resource kit to promote NDVRW 2017 in their communities.
According to their website, "EveryLibrary is joining NDVRW 2017 to bring libraries across the country into this new partnership to reach all Americans who are eligible to vote. NDVRW supports voter enfranchisement and registering to vote while highlighting issues like accessible ballots, accessible polling places, and policy issues affecting disability communities. AAPD's REV UP Campaign coordinates NDVRW each year to increase the political power of people with disabilities while also engaging candidates and the media to recognize the disability community."
