The National Forum on Disability Issues (NFDI) is scheduled to take place on September 28, 2012 in Columbus, Ohio. This non-partisan forum is the only national event that brings together representatives from President Barack Obama’s and former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney’s campaigns and provides them with a platform to present their candidate’s policy positions on disability issues. The Arc has joined more than 80 other national organizations in pledging our support as a co-sponsor of this event.
Edward M. “Ted” Kennedy, Jr., and Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) are speaking on behalf of their respective parties at NFDI. Each of them will present their campaign’s positions on matters relating to Americans with disabilities.
Even if you can’t attend you can watch a live stream of the event or host a viewing party. To learn more visit the NFDI website – http://www.nfdi.org/webcast_register/.
