"Because of Alice Wong, Greg Beratan, and Andrew Pulrang's #CripTheVote movement, I think of myself as a disabled voter and am reminded of the power of disability communities at the ballot box. I'm thrilled to have this work in Times Square and hope it brings attention to the political power of disabled people."
