> Every two months, CTD closely examines issues that matter to Texans with 
> disabilities in our Issue Focus series. We gather various viewpoints and 
> resources on the issue, showcase stories from real Texans, and inform you on 
> how to take action. In September and October, we'll take a close look at 
> Successful Advocacy Strategies.
> 
> In conjunction with our Issue Focus on Advocacy, we're devoting this issue of 
> the Messenger to the REV UP Campaign, a collaborative effort with the 
> Disability Voting Action Project and the Texas Association of Centers for 
> Independent Living to activate voters with disabilities in Texas.

> CTD and our partners are thrilled with the success of the Texas Disability 
> Issues Forum last week. But remember: the Forum was only the beginning! 
> That's why we've joined with the Disability Voting Action Project (DVAP) and 
> Texas Association of Centers for Independent Living (TACIL) on the 
> non-partisan, statewide REV UP Campaign. The goals of REV UP are to:
> 
> Register people with disabilities to vote
> Educate them on the positions of the candidates
> Encourage people with disabilities and their supporters to Vote on November 
> 4th
> 
> Wednesday October 1st, Centers for Independent Living and other community 
> locations throughout the state will hold "Register to Vote" events. This 
> series of events kicks off a week-long effort ending on October 6th, 
> preparing people with disabilities for the November 4th elections.
> 
> “The Disability Vote has frequently been ignored by candidates for statewide 
> offices,” said Michelle Crain, President of TACIL. “There are nearly 3 
> million people with disabilities. When you add in family members, providers 
> of services, professionals and advocates, you realize how powerful The 
> Disability Vote will be.”
