The Minnesota Council on Disability (MCD) is committed to providing all individuals–with or without disabilities–access to our website, documents and resources.
Some users may not be able to see, hear or process information in particular formats, may have difficulty reading or understanding text, or may not be able to use a keyboard or a mouse. We have developed our information, website, and web content to ensure compatibility with common adaptive technologies by utilizing the [State of Minnesota Accessibility Standard (PDF)], which is based on [Section 508] of the Rehabilitation Act (as amended) and the [Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0].
If information on a MCD web page or in a document is not accessible to you, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. In your email, please provide your contact information, the URL (i.e., link or web address) of the material and the problem you have experienced. We will respond with the information you are seeking. In addition, we will ensure the accessibility issue is corrected to avert continuing accessibility problems.
We will continue to review and update our documents and website to ensure compliance with current and future standards.
