Texas Disability Issues Forum
Our lives are at stake

Save the Date

The Texas Disability Issues Forum (TDIF) is back for the 2022 midterm elections! Join us Monday September 19, 2022 in Austin to find out what major party candidates have to say on your most pressing issues, from healthcare to elections to education, and more!

TDIF is a nonpartisan, one-day event, where candidates for elected statewide office address concerns of Texans with disabilities. We invite both Democrat and Republican candidates for the offices of Governor, Lt. Governor, Attorney General, and Agriculture Commissioner. This is not a debate. TDIF consists of a series of one-on-one candidate interviews, conducted by an impartial moderator.

Thanks to our media partner, the Texas Tribune, for supporting TDIF in 2022!

Get involved

Attend, Watch, or Volunteer

TDIF wants you to be prepared to cast your ballot in November, so we’re providing multiple ways to learn about the candidates and their stances on issues of interest to Texans with disabilities. Whether you want to be in the room when it happens, be a part of the event, or do some reading on your own time, we’ve got you covered.

You can attend TDIF in person, watch it virtually, volunteer, or add your organization’s support.
See who's on the TDIF guest list, plus survey responses on our Candidates page.
