MEDIA RELEASE: Local Dickson candidates to attend ‘Disability Matters’ community forum today
Almost one in five Queenslanders are living with disability. It is a critical issue for thousands of Australians.
This week marks a National Day of Action to ensure that the NDIS is at the top of the agenda this federal election.
Local residents and members of the media are invited to attend today’s (Tuesday April 30) community forum at Strathpine Community Centre to discuss how the future Federal Government can lead with a vision of a more inclusive society.
Local candidates will be given a platform to explain why disability matters to them, and the disability platform that they bring to the electorate.
Attendees will have the opportunity to propose questions to candidates in a Q&A-style forum about why disability matters and hear how the candidate will prioritise disability if elected.

When: 4:30pm-6:30pm on April 30, 2019
