With just a few weeks left before the election, students with disabilities will give a unique perspective on national and local political issues at an upcoming event at Cape Fear Community College.
The event will be held on Monday, Oct. 29 and is called â€œIn-Cahoots 2: Election Edition.â€
â€œIn-Cahootsâ€ is an ongoing project to promote collaboration between CFCC students with and without disabilities.
Jeremy Vest of MTV’s â€œHowâ€™s Your News?â€ will host the event and share excerpts from a recent video he made with a news team made up of journalists with disabilities such as Downâ€™s Syndrome and cerebral palsy at the 2012 Democratic and Republican national conventions.
Vest will share his experiences interviewing national political figures, reveal what itâ€™s like to live with a disability, and answer audience questions. The event will also feature a video about the election made by CFCC film students and students with disabilities.
The event is from 1:00 to 2:30 p.m. in room S-002 on the ground floor of the McLeod building and is free and open to the public.
