The National Forum on Disability Issues happens on Sept. 28 at the Hyatt Regency in Columbus, Ohio. The event is the only one of the campaign that focuses on disability issues. More than 50 disability groups across the country are sponsoring the forum.
Both President Obama and Mitt Romney have been invited to participate, but neither has yet to confirm. The event allows each candidate or a representative to review his plans to improve life for the disabled, and then the candidate or representative must take prepared questions from moderator Frank Sesno. Sesno is a former CNN White House correspondent who now directs the School of Media and Public Affairs at The George Washington University.
In 2008, Sen. Tom Harkin, D-Iowa spoke on behalf of Obama and John McCain participated via satellite.
Free tickets are available, allowing for a maximum capacity of 500.
