From: The Arc Minnesota Organizer of Disability Matters Day at the Capitol

Disability Advocates!

Come on February 28 to the State Capitol! Self-advocates, family members, other advocates, and their allies will gather for Disability Matters Day at the Capitol, and we invite you to join us there, too. Sign up to come using the online registration form. Set up a meeting with your legislator before you come. On the day of the event, check in at the L’etoile du Nord Room in the basement of the State Capitol after MN-CCD’s Tuesday at the Capitol, and pick up materials and fact sheets that you’ll need that day. Then join advocates from around the state at 11:30 a.m. in the Capitol Rotunda, and rally for the services that make your life possible. Before or after the rally, share your story and concerns with your state legislators before you head home.

The event’s sponsors include Brain Injury Alliance of Minnesota, Get Up Stand Up to Cure Paralysis Foundation, Minnesota Consortium for Citizens with Disabilities, and The Arc Minnesota.  Contact Mike Gude with any questions and to RSVP at mikeg@arcmn.org. See you at the Capitol!
