Obama and Disability Issues

Obama made disability issues an important part of his platform; now we have the opportunity to advocate the importance of disability rights and health needs, to press their importance to the new administration.

To encourage this endeavor, Andrea from We Can Do has written to request emails to Obama about disability issues:

I'm trying to encourage more people with disabilities, our loved ones, colleagues, and other allies to write emails to Obama to increase the visibility of disability issues among his staff. Letters are wanted not only from across the United States but also from around the world. The following Call to Action explains more about how and why:

Please visit the website for more information on how you can help.

THANK YOU for linking to the Call to Action. I hope some of your readers will take a few minutes to send emails to Obama's team. And I hope other bloggers will also blog the campaign.

If you write your own email to Obama and decide to make it an open letter that you post at your blog, please let me know and I'd be happy to link to it!
