The Coalition Announces: Presidential Candidate Forum

The Coalition has been contacted by the Obama/Biden Presidential campaign with an offer to speak with North Carolina mental health, developmental disability and substance abuse advocates about the campaign's position on these issues and to hear from advocates about their concerns. The campaign will be sending a representative to speak with and answer questions from Coalition members and the public. This is a wonderful opportunity to hear from and educate a Presidential Candidate’s policy committee on the important SA/DD/MH issues that need to be addressed at the Federal level.

This is not a debate event between candidates; only one candidate’s campaign will be present. Please note that the Coalition has contacted the McCain/Palin campaign with a similar offer, and are doing the same with the NC Republican Party. Should they respond with interest, a similar event will be held to speak with them on these same issues.

The forum is open to the public and we encourage individuals, families, providers, advocates, and anyone concerned with developmental disabilities, addiction, and mental health to attend.

Date: Tuesday, October 21st
Time: 6 p.m. with doors opening at 5:30 p.m.
Where: Meredith College Chapel, Raleigh NC

Snacks & beverages will be served beginning at 5:30 p.m.

Spread the word and plan to attend!

Please come with QUESTIONS!
