One Vote Now

This National Disability Voter Registration Week, we are so excited to re-launch One Vote Now, our resource website on voting and the Presidential Election. OneVoteNow.org is here to help make sure you can exercise your right to vote because nothing should block your ability to participate in our democracy. Elections should be equally accessible for all Americans—including the disability community. Elections are more fair when they represent all of us.

Get Out The Vaccine

The National Association of Councils on Developmental Disabilities (NACDD) and our 56 member Councils work across the United States and its territories to support programs that promote self-determination, integration, and inclusion for all people in the United States with developmental disabilities. We know the COVID-19 pandemic has altered the lives of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD). Individual and public health, education and employment opportunities, and community living have drastically changed.

For many people with disabilities, including I/DD, they and their families or caregivers may be feeling anxious or unsure about the vaccine and its safety. Vaccine decisions should be based on facts and trusted sources.
