Bill of Voting Rights

I have the right to take part in civic life.

We are actively fighting for the fair and civic inclusion of people with disabilities in every political, social, and economic front.  REV Up aims to increase the number of people with disabilities who vote. We have what you need to Register to Vote, to get Educated on the issues, and to Vote. We are non-partisan, and invite voters of any party to join our efforts.

Disability issues need your support.  Who you vote for impacts your access to healthcare, education, transportation and the list goes on. We need your vote! Register to vote and sign up with REV UP.  Join our voices as we support disability issues.

We all Have a Right to be Engaged

Marlene Sallo, former ED of Disability Law Center, was interviewed by WGBH on election day. Watch the video and read the story at https://www.wgbh.org/specials/2020/11/03/we-all-have-a-right-to-be-engaged-civil-rights-attorney-on-making-voting-accessible-to-all.

“Her team’s efforts to ensure that this year’s elections were accessible to all voters began nearly a year ago, when the Disability Law Center started working with state and local officials to ensure that the language used for mail-in voting met the same accessibility standards as those for voting in person. Given health and safety considerations due to the coronavorus pandemic, it became even more important to ensure that all voters could safely cast their ballots, whether at the polls or from home.

“Don’t we all have the right to vote independently and privately?” she said. “Someone with a disability should not have less of a right than someone without a disability.”


Why is the Disability Vote so important?
