2020 #CripTheVote Candidate Chats

With the 2020 Presidential election fast approaching, the co-partners of #CripTheVote, Andrew Pulrang, Gregg Beratan, and Alice Wong, invite candidates from any party to join us in a Twitter chat about disability policy and issues. We are offering to host individual chats for each interested candidate in 2020. Below is an outline of the chat format including questions and time at the end for engagement with community members. Please note: Our advocacy is nonpartisan and any chats with candidates are not official endorsements.

If you’re interested, email us:

Check out this recap from our last Twitter chat:

#CripTheVote Candidate Chat format for each individual candidate (60-75 minutes):

Introduction and reminders on how to participate 

Q1: Tell us about your engagement with the disability community so far and examples of your campaign’s access and inclusion? 

Q2: What are some of the main things you learned from the disability community and how did it influence your overall vision of what you want to do if elected?  

Q3: Please share your policies and proposals that are focused on people with disabilities and how you developed them.  

Q4: How are disabled people involved in your campaign whether it’s staff, volunteers, advisors, or consultants? How will this continue in your administration if elected?

Q5: Is there anything else you’d like to share with us about disability issues?

Q6: Do you have any questions you’d like to ask the disability community?

[Remaining 15-20 minutes open for questions from chat participants to the candidate]

Wrap-up and thank you.
