ST. CLOUD -- A town hall forum on disability issues was held at the St. Cloud Public Library tonight (Tuesday).

The forum was a way for members of the Minnesota Consortium for Citizens with Disabilities (MN-CCD) to address the public on their plans for 2014.

Rebecca Covington is the Executive Director for the Minnesota Consortium for Citizens with Disabilities. She says one of their plans for the upcoming year is the five percent campaign.

Those in attendance got a chance to speak to elected officials, and address their concerns on how the government handles disability issues.

Covington says education and taking action are the best ways to raise community awareness.
