Action or attitude - it is still Ableism

"Throughout history, it has been the inaction of those who could have acted; the indifference of those who should have known better; the silence of the voice of justice when it mattered most; that has made it possible for evil to triumph." - Haile Selassie . . . more. . .

Excellent Customer Service Is Essential

Excellent customer service is the responsibility of all levels of an organization and not simply of its front-line staff. Customer satisfaction should be integrated into all internal processes and policies. With this in mind, the points below will assist you and your campaign team in providing excellent customer service for voters with disabilities:

  • Always treat anyone with a disability with the same respect and courtesy that you would offer to everyone else.
  • Extend common courtesies as you would to anyone else. Shake hands and/or give them your business card
  • .
  • If the person cannot shake your hand or grasp your card, they will tell you.
  • Treat adults with disabilities as adults.

Would you have hired Terry Fox or Rick Hansen?
I am only one, but I am one.

I cannot do everything, but I can do something.

And I will not let what I cannot do interfere with what I can do.


- Edward Hale
