Take part in the #DisabilityGE2020 campaign!
The Disability Federation of Ireland is running a #DisabilityGE2020 campaign to show General Election 2020 candidates that disability matters. You can use the handy template on their website to send your candidates an email asking them to prioritise the rights of people with disabilities in #disabilityGE2020. Just select your constituency from a drop-down menu, which takes you to a prepared letter. You can add to it and personalise it as much as you want, or leave it as is. But make sure to get involved and send it, and ensure your voice is heard in this election!
