Americans with disabilities are an almost-silent voice in American politics. Many choose not to vote, and many more do not participate in the political process. Local, state and national policymakers make important decisions that directly impact Americans with disabilities, but the people they will most affect rarely influence those decisions.

According The American Association of People with Disabilities, of the 62.7 million Americans with disabilities who are eligible to vote,  only 16 million voted. 

In addition to voting, Iowans with disabilities have opportunities to make positive change by volunteering on a campaign, joining a political party or cause, advocating for change or even running for office.
In order to make the state a better place for everyone, individuals with disabilities need to have a greater voice in their community and in public policy decisions made at all levels of government.
