Disability Community Action Alert - ADAPT Needs Help For Grant Funding

                          PLEASE VOTE AND FORWARD!      
Thanks to so many people from around the country who either came to DC or supported ADAPT from home, we once again led a charge that has (for now) saved Medicaid from efforts to destroy it.

Unfortunately, the Disability Community is likely to face many more attacks in the coming year including more efforts to cut Medicaid, undercut the ADA, underfund social services. We will also continue to experience violence against our community in its various forms and need to fight back against other ableist policies. It is clear that we are going to need ADAPT's direct action and activism more than ever!

You can help with this fight! CREDO mobile has nominated ADAPT as one of the three recipients of its October grant program. The amount ADAPT receives is determined by a public voting process.

Please go to the link below and vote for ADAPT!                    
It costs nothing. By voting with a valid email address, you can help ADAPT continue to lead the fight against the attacks on our community and to push for the Disability Integration Act which will ensure that no Disabled American is denied Life and Liberty simply because they have a disability.

Please share the link with everyone you know over all of your networks and ask them to vote for ADAPT.

ADAPT is a national grass-roots community that organizes disability rights activists to engage in nonviolent direct action, including civil disobedience, to assure the civil and human rights of people with disabilities to live in freedom.
