The first #CripTheVote Twitter Chat was a tremendous success! Dozens of people offered ideas and observations on disability issues in this year’s U.S. election campaign. There were so many great ideas it was hard to keep up.
The next #CripTheVote event will be tomorrow, Saturday, February 13, from 8:00 to 9:00 PM Eastern, before the 9:00 Republican debate.

I can’t tell you how encouraging it is to see so many people who not only are interested in promoting disability policy issues, but really seem eager to do so. Alice Wong has created a Storify so you can see what people said:
