Please join the Minnesota State Council on Disability and Pathways to Employment while we celebrate National Disability Employment Awareness Month in October. Plan to attend the MSCOD Annual Awards Event on October 18.
We are thrilled to announce NPR news correspondent Joseph Shapiro is our freelance speaker. With the publication of his book ‘NO PITY: People with Disabilities Forging a New Civil Rights Movement,’ Shapiro changes the tone of disability-related conversations in America.
After Shapiro, a panel of disability-rights advocates will discuss “Why haven’t more gains been made employment opportunities for people with disabilities?” There will be an opportunity to ask questions and engage the panel.
