The Ohio Candidate Forum on Disability Issues
is an event for Ohio Governor and U.S. Senate candidates to express their positions on disability-related issues/policy. These
issues affect approximately 2 million Ohioans with disabilities, at least 13% of our state's population.
People living with disabilities face significant issues,
for example the nationwide jobless rate for people with disabilities is more than double that of people without disabilities,
according to the 2015 American Community Survey. The poverty rate for people with disabilities is 30.3% compared to 12.1%
for those without a disability and almost 25% of students with disabilities did not complete High School.
Moderator: Mr. Alan Johnson, (Retired) Columbus
