Now is the time to register folks for the Forum. With a capacity of 300, we expect to be more than half full in a few days–an unprecedented response from the disability community.
September 24, 2014 will be a historic day for the Texas disability community.
That’s when the major candidates for Texas’ three highest offices—Governor, Lieutenant Governor, and Attorney General—are invited to talk about public policy issues of interest to the Texas disability community. The Texas Disability Issues Forum (TDIF) takes place just six weeks before Election Day. It’s not a debate; but a chance for the candidates to share their positions on critical issues and answer questions from an independent moderator. The forum is non-partisan.
As of August 20th, each of the Democratic candidates—Senators Wendy Davis. Leticia Van de Putte, and Sam Houston—have confirmed their attendance. Organizers continue to work with the campaigns of the Republican candidates—Attorney General Greg Abbott and Senators Dan Patrick and Ken Paxton.
Tickets are $10. You must reserve them in advance. Groups traveling to Austin may be able to get financial assistance. Can’t make it to the forum? No problem! It will be broadcast and live-streamed by Channel Austin. Go online for all the details: bit.ly/TexasDIF
