Voting and Civic Involvement: the issues for people with disabilities

This is the first in a series about voting and getting involved in government. People with disabilities are less likely to vote than the general population; they are more likely to feel disempowered. We’d like to see that change. You CAN get involved and make a difference. In this show we take a look at what’s at stake for people with disabilities. What are the issues people with disabilities care about? Our guests are Damien Licata, Executive Director, Granite State Monarchs and Chair of the NH Mental Health Consumer Council , and Linda Quintanilha, ABLE-NH member and Monadnock Developmental Services Legislative Liaison and Family Council Member.
