    I guess this comment will be Romney's "If you’ve got a business. you didn’t build that." speech.

    Obama wishes it was 67%. I say 90% of people love big government.

    2012 California Statewide Virtual Ballot Initiative Forum
    The Systems Change Network (SCNet) has recognized the possible power of the Disability Community in California as a voting block, with the potential to account for 20% of the electorate. That is why the SCNet Organizers prioritized Voter Education and Retention in their Statewide Advocacy Plan for 2012. This year SCNet Organizers have already developed and executed nearly 20 Voter Education Forums on the local level, offering people with disabilities information on how to register to vote, voter accessibility and accessible voting technology, voting rights and researching initiatives and candidates. The SCNet Hub has offered webinar trainings open to the public in these areas increasing access to information about voting. And the SCNet Organizers are planning many local level candidate and issue forums to be hosted by Independent Living Centers and local coalition partners across the state.
    The SCNet also recognizes the fundamental application of Independent Living in voting is to offer the most complete non-partisan information, resources and education to disabled voters so that they may cast the votes of their own choosing. An educated voter is the freest voter!

The SCNet Hub has offered webinar trainings open to the public in these areas increasing access to information about voting. And the SCNet Organizers are planning many local level candidate and issue forums to be hosted by Independent Living Centers and local coalition partners across the state.
    The SCNet also recognizes the fundamental application of Independent Living in voting is to offer the most complete non-partisan information, resources and education to disabled voters so that they may cast the votes of their own choosing. An educated voter is the freest voter!
    Voters will be asked to make a choice on several statewide ballot initiatives this election cycle. And the SCNet seeks to provide information on those initiatives that touch issues important to people with disabilities. In order to assist the SCNet Organizers and the Independent Living Centers we will host a 2012 Statewide Virtual Ballot Initiative Forum.
    Disability Community Engagement
    This forum will not only promote an educated disability vote, but will further the IL philosophy by engaging people with disabilities as decision-makers about which of these issues are important to them.
    In preparation we will email a survey monkey to the nearly 400 members of SCNetCA.org asking them to vote for three of the eleven propositions that will appear on the 2012 California ballot. The email will include links to each proposition’s Title and Summary prepared by the California Attorney General on the Secretary of State’s website. The winning three will be the topic initiatives for this virtual forum. We will also employ the SCNet website membership list SCNet Organizer’s networks to advertise a call for questions from the Disability Community about the three chosen initiatives. SCNet social media accounts on Facebook and Twitter will be used as additional tools engage the disability voice for both of these processes.
    People with disabilities will be able to watch and listen to this forum via the internet and teleconference from their homes or offices. But they will also have the opportunity to join Forum watch Parties hosted by SCNet Organizers at Independent Living Centers across California that will project the webinar and amplify the sound for large groups.
    The SCNet has experienced a spike in membership growth and engagement through our website recruitment and the improving community organizing skills of the SCNet. Recently we were able to recruit over 50 participants in less than two weeks to attend an SCNet webinar Training. We will capitalize on this movement within the network to recruit audience members from the disability and allied communities. Additionally we will work with coalition partners to advertise the Forum through emails and social media posting.
    Forum Logistics
    Forum event logistics and planning committee will be facilitated by SCNet Hub staff at CFILC, which will include working with the AT Network staff for webinar logistics and staff scheduling (live captioner, time keeper).
    The forum is proposed to be held by webinar using Elluminate software on October 18, 2012 from 10:00 am to 11:30 am, will offer live captioning and will be archived at SCNetCA.org for voters to watch on the SCNet YouTube channel. Representatives from both proponent and opponent campaigns recognized by the California Secretary of State will be invited to state their positions and answers questions about the initiatives. The questions (solicitation discussed above) will be decided on by a planning committee consisting of SCNet Organizers, SCNet Hub Staff and people with disabilities. The chosen questions will be asked directly by their author if possible.
    Event advertisement will be driven by email alerts from SCNetCA.org and postings on SCNet Facebook and Twitter accounts and by the SCNet Organizer’s networks. Registration will be hosted by the SCNet Hub on SCNetCA.org, and the hub would be responsible for sending reminder with log on logistical information.
    The planning committee will work together to write proponent and opponent initiative campaign letter invitations and the SCNet Hub staff will be responsible for delivering them and attaining RSVP’s. This committee will also collectively recruit candidates and decide on the Forum Moderator.
    A rehearsal for all non-campaign or audience participants will be scheduled before the date of the event.
