The Minnesota Council on Disability is excited to announce that Governor Tim Walz and Lt. Governor Peggy Flanagan will be providing the welcoming address to the upcoming Legislative Forum on Disability. The Legislative Forum provides an opportunity for advocates and other disability stakeholders who develop, design, advocate for, and implement disability-related public policy to interact with lawmakers directly.
