Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - San Diego city leaders gathered downtown Friday to promote National Disability Employment Awareness Month.

Mayor Kevin Faulconer joined several City Council members and disability service groups to promote awareness and opportunities for San Diegans with disabilities.

The public was encouraged to take part in interactive learning opportunities that attempt to replicate the challenges disabled people face.

The mayor also announced that the city is establishing a permanent disability advisory board.

"This ensures that our disabled community has a voice that is heard by city leaders and that we're providing results," Faulconer said.

San Diego is home to more than 100,000 people with disabilities.
