DFI elections campaign PDF Print E-mail

The Disability Federation of Ireland is running a campaign to make disability a top priority for candidates in the Local and European Parliament Elections on the 24th May.

They have a range of actions you can take if you care about disability issues - such as:

 

  • Use their email tool to contact your local candidates. 
  • Arrange for your local club, branch, organisation to bring up disability issues with candidates.
  • Organise a Q & A event with candidates.
  • Attend other events where candidates are speaking and ask questions.
  • If you meet a candidate out and about, or if they come knocking on your door, ask them what they will do about disability issues.
  • Contact your local papers and radio stations to raise disability issues before the elections. 
  • Get the disability facts for your county via their website and raise awareness.
  • Get on social media using #DisabilityVotesCount to follow and contribute to the campaign:
  • on Twitter @DisabilityFed and on Facebook @DFIIreland.
