MCD encourages you to GET INVOLVED! MN Boards and Commissions are Recruiting People with Disabilities!
Have you ever thought about serving on a State of MN Board or Commission? Your voice and influence is important to a diverse and inclusive policy environment for all.
The Minnesota Department of Human Rights, in partnership with the Office of Governor Dayton and the Olmstead Implementation Office, is offering three information sessions in the coming weeks on diverse and inclusive state boards and commissions. Sessions will provide an overview of the importance of serving on a state board or commission. Your voice and influence makes a difference in policy and decision making. We are reaching out to underrepresented communities because it is important for state boards and commissions to reflect the diversity of Minnesota. In particular, we want to reach out to the disability community to encourage participation.
This is an opportunity for members from diverse communities throughout Minnesota to connect, engage, and participate in policy decisions that impact their communities. Members who are appointed onto boards and commissions should reflect the diversity of Minnesota for the benefit of all. It is important that everyone have the opportunity to apply. Your voice makes a difference!
Attend an information session to meet others who have served, hear about current opportunities and learn how to apply. Light refreshments will be provided.
To request an ADA accommodation, please contact Civic Engagement Coordinator, Mai Thor at 651-539-1165 or firstname.lastname@example.org at least four business days in advance.
All sessions are from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm.
