Disabled People and Civic Engagement
Brandeis University in partnership with the Ford Foundation and the Sillerman Center for the Advancement of Philanthropy are working to better understand the challenges, gaps, and opportunities for cross-movement work between disability rights and civic engagement communities. This work is informed by disabled people in the disability rights community to identify areas where philanthropy can better commit (and in some cases recommit) to disability rights within their civic engagement work.
As part of this research they are sharing a survey for people with disabilities who live in the U.S. about their civic engagement experiences. This survey is anonymous and voluntary.
They would appreciate if you would take a few minutes to complete the survey, and/or share with your networks. If you have questions or require an accessible version of this survey please let Sandy Ho, firstname.lastname@example.org, know and one will be provided.
You can read more about Civic Engagement at FordFoundation.org.
