Disability voters are closely watching the race to become the next Mayor of Chicago. Join us for this panel-style event to hear from candidates vying to become mayor of the country’s third-largest city. Candidates will share about their vision for the City of Chicago and respond to disability-specific issue questions. This is a great opportunity to meet and connect with candidates.

This event is non-partisan and should not be considered an endorsement by any of the supporting organizations. Given the high number of candidates in this race, expect an update in early December as to the exact confirmed candidates and the final event panel format.

The questions for the forum have been selected from a public survey of disability voters conducted in September 2018. In addition to answering selected oral questions during the event, candidates who participate must also answer a series of written questions in advance. These questions are also taken from the September survey and the responses will be published online as the forum begins.

This forum will be livestreamed for those who prefer to access it from home; the link for the livestream video and CART will be made available closer to the date of the event. CART, ASL interpreters and personal attendants will be available on site. The venue is physically accessible. When you register, there is an option to request disability accommodations. You can also contact Monica at mhamada@accessliving.org for other disability-related accommodations requests.

USE OF PUBLIC TRANSIT OR PARATRANSIT HIGHLY ENCOURAGED. Access Living’s building does not have a dedicated parking lot for public use. There are paid lots and metered street parking in the area. Please be sure to plan ahead for parking needs.
