What to Do Now That the Election is Over

Mark Miller, who blogs at Special Needs Truth '08, has a list of actions that disability advocates can continue post-election.

As I've said several times on this blog, I am not a one-issue voter, even though I care deeply about issues related to disabilities. The best thing for families dealing with special needs will be what's best for all families -- including a strong economy, dependable health coverage, and fairness in all government programs.

His excellent suggestions include writing letters to Barack Obama, John McCain and Sarah Palin, encouraging them to continue promoting the needs of people with disabilities. He also suggests staying in touch with major disability issues through his blog and others, including this one. Thanks, Mark!
