The 2014 Midterm Elections are over and APSE would like to provide our members, and others in the disability advocacy community, with information about the results and the importance of building new partnerships with newly elected legislators!
Today, we would like to thank all past, present, and future servicemen and women for their service to our country. In recognition of Veterans Day, APSE would like to provide some resources available for Veterans looking for employment opportunities. As you know, the current low participation rate of citizens with disabilities in the workforce is unacceptable, including those who have served our country.
Iowa APSE’s Legislative Efforts!
Happy National Disability Employment Awareness Month from Iowa APSE! Iowa APSE continues to be a leader in Iowa’s Employment 1st initiative and recently wrapped up our Annual Conference highlighting national experts in disability policy.
Did you know your legislators use social media too?
There are many different communication strategies that you can use as an APSE leader. Choosing the most effective strategy or strategies will be important as you pursue your advocacy work.
Battleground Poll: Will America’s 56 Million Citizens with Disabilities Swing the Elections?
A new poll recently published shows that candidates in tight election races should be supporting the CRPD and other disability issues if they want to get elected!
APSE is concerned that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nevada) has appointed Bob Brown to the National Council on Disability (NCD). Mr. Brown is a strong supporter of subminimum wages and segregated housing for people with disabilities.
