Pushing Limits

Disability & the U.S. Election – Pushing Limits – November 4, 2022

Lilian Aluri, American Association of People with Disabilties, Civic Engagement Coordinator

The election is right around the corner.

What role will people with disabilities play in the national contest, both as voters and as candidates?


Pennsylvania Senate candidate John Fetterman has faced a barrage of attacks on his competency after having a stroke in May.  Many other potential disabled candidates are simply passed over by their respective parties.  And disabled voters face vote suppression similar to that of people of color.


Join us as host Mark Romoser discusses all this and more with Lilian Aluri, civic engagement coordinator for the American Association of People with Disabilities and Maria Town.

Maria Town, American Association of People with Disabilities, President, CEO



Maria Town is the president and CEO at the American Association of People with Disabilities. Before that, she was the key disability person in the Houston mayor’s office.  And she learned a thing or two about voter suppression as a student at  Emory University outside Atlanta, Georgia.


This program inaugurates an expanded program schedule for Pushing Limits, KPFA’s weekly program by and about people with disabilities.
