This August, after reviewing numerous applications, Developmental Pathways hired two self-advocate interns to join our 2021 Voter Engagement campaign! The campaign seeks to inform, educate, and empower people of all abilities about voting.
We are thrilled to introduce Nikalous “Nik” Abowitz from Arapahoe County and Evan Stevens from Douglas County. Both are excited to share their voices and help DP spread awareness about voting to the community.
Evan is hardworking, outgoing, enthusiastic, and a huge sports fan! He will be diving into the voter registration process and presenting tips about deciphering facts vs. opinions.
Nik is independent, compassionate, and service-driven. In this role, he will focus on helping people find transportation to their local polling sites and providing information about accessible voting options and supports.
Kim Tenure, Associate Director of I/DD Policy, leads DP’s voter engagement efforts. Joining her are self-advocate interns Evan and Nik and Andrea Morales, Community Resource Program Administrator in the Community Engagement department. This team will develop and distribute non-partisan informational resources via blog posts, social media, and videos from now through the fall. DP is hosting a virtual town hall event as well as creating a free downloadable voter guide.
The Voter Engagement team is looking forward to connecting with you. Stay tuned for more information coming soon! Please follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to stay updated on new materials and upcoming activities and events.
