2012 National Disability Policy Discussions Education, Employment, and the
Civil Rights of People with Disabilities

"Ensuring Our Voices Are Heard in the Policy Discussion"

The National Federation of the Blind will be hosting policy discussions on
the education, employment, and civil rights of people with disabilities
during the upcoming Republican and Democratic national conventions.  Public
policies and laws affecting people with disabilities have a profound impact
throughout our entire society.  Most people know someone who has a
disability.  It may be a friend, a family member, or a coworker.  Many
others will experience disability at some point in their lives, especially
as life expectancy increases.  The social and economic consequences of
disability therefore have some impact on all of us.  Our nation's potential
policy leaders will be determined through the political process taking place
at these conventions, and we want to ensure that they are aware of our
policy concerns.

Individuals who would like to participate on a policy panel should contact
Anil Lewis at Alewis at nfb.org<mailto:Alewis at nfb.org> or (410) 659-9314,
extension 2374.

Limited seating is available.  Individuals wishing to attend either of these
events should RSVP as soon as possible by emailing
AHammerbacher at nfb.org<mailto:AHammerbacher at nfb.org>.

The location, date, and time of each forum are as follows:

Republican National Convention
Armani's at the Grand Hyatt Tampa Bay
2900 Bayport Drive, Tampa, FL 33607
Tuesday, August 28, 2012

Democratic National Convention
Charlotte City Club
121 West Trade Street# 3100, Charlotte, NC 28202 Wednesday, September 5,

At this pivotal moment, when the policy leaders of this great nation are
being determined, it is essential that our voices are being heard.  If you
are attending either convention, you should be attending the National
Disability Policy Discussions.
