This year Disability Advocacy Day will look different, given the COVID-19 pandemic. Even though we can’t go to the Capitol, it is still critical for us to advocate for human and civil rights, self-advocacy and self-direction, equity and belonging, and disability and racial justice!
That’s why the disability community will participate in Disability Advocacy Day “Off the Hill” virtually on Tuesday, February 23, 2021!
Here is a high-level agenda for the day:
- All Day: Meet with your Representatives and Senators virtually, any time.
- 11:00 to 11:45 am: Rally! Leaders in the disability community will share stories and information about important policy issues.
- 11:45 to 12:00 pm: Break.
- 12:00 to 1:30 pm: Lunch & Learn! In-depth discussion of issues not featured during the rally.
You will need to register in advance.
After your register, you will get a confirmation email. Save the confirmation email; it will have information that you will need to join the meeting.
If you have questions or need more information, contact The Arc Minnesota’s Legislative Advocacy Intern, Evelyn Humphrey, at email@example.com.
