Greetings from The Maryland Disabilities Forum:

The Maryland Disabilities Forum is proud to announce that we will be hosting the Baltimore City Mayoral Candidates Forum on Disability Issues. The Forum will take place on Thursday, August 4, 2011 at the National Federation of the Blind in Baltimore from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Mayoral Candidates from every party will be invited to participate in the event. Candidates will be asked to address their respective platforms on disability issues, and will also take questions from the audience.

We are asking you as individuals with disabilities, family members and those who care for and about people with disabilities, advocates, community organizations, agencies, and businesses to circulate this notice to anyone who would be interested in attending the event; specifically to people who live in Baltimore City. The Mayoral Candidates Forum on Disability Issues is a free event, and though it is not required, pre-registration is preferable.

Baltimore City is home to the highest concentrated population of people with disabilities in the state of Maryland. Providing a platform for Marylanders with disabilities to hear from Mayoral Candidates about the policies that affect their lives serves to keep a growing voting population well informed and active in the political process. We encourage all interested parties to attend and to get actively involved in determining who will serve as Baltimore City's next Mayor.
