Do you want to see self-driving vehicles (SDVs) become a reality for Minnesotans with disabilities? Do you want to join other motivated Minnesotans to get activated and make this happen? Would you like to guide state legislators as they write a bill to create a state-sponsored task force to make SDVs accessible, affordable and reliable for Minnesotans with disabilities by 2020?
If so, then please come to our kick-off event! MN State Representatives Frank Hornstein and Jason Isaacson will join us, and we would love to hear why SDVs are important to you, what scares you about them, and what next steps we need to take in Minnesota to bring SDVs to our communities.
