TIPS ON MEETING WITH YOUR LEGISLATORS
- To find out who your senator or representative is, go to: http://www.gis.leg.mn/iMaps/districts/
- Let them know which district you live in. They are more receptive to making appointments with their constituents.
- Make a 10-min appointment on April 11 with your legislators by March 20.
- Say you want to talk about services for people with disabilities.
- Be ready to tell how you use these services and how they allow you to live independently in the community.
- Bring a letter to Gov. Dayton about how these services impact your life. We will deliver these to his office.
