Yes We Can! Youth with Disabilities and Civic Engagement

Location: Grand Ballroom (2nd Floor)

Individuals with disabilities reflect all and no political parties, reside in every community, and are much less likely to vote and engage in civic behaviors than peers without disabilities. As we look toward one of the most important elections of our lifetimes, it doesn’t have to be this way. This Spark Session will consider the challenges that dissuade young people with disabilities from civic participation, and re-imagine how our education system can prepare them to seize power and agency in the civic space.
