A message from the Minnesota Council on Disability’s Executive Director, David Dively: “I am looking forward to essential engagement with you, to include your voices in this organization, and to find ways we can grow collaborations with you.”
Welcome David Dively as our incoming Executive Director. It is an exciting time for the Council – with David’s fresh take on leadership and several newly appointed council members – it’s a time for envisioning MCD’s future, and for setting strategic priorities and continuing to advocate for the rights of Minnesotans with disabilities.
MCD seeks a Public Policy Director to provide leadership over our policy and budgetary legislative priorities. Works with disability organizations, partner agencies, the legislative body, the governor’s office, and constituent groups through advice and counsel.
Starting Wednesday, September 2, 2020, through Tuesday, September 15, the Minnesota Council on Disability, along with the disability community, will be hosting a “Virtual State Fair – Extended! Event.” Leave a comment on our virtual note board.
Thank you to everyone who followed along with our virtual celebration of the 30th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). MCD is committed to continuing this conversation. We provide training, technical assistance and work with our partners to develop public policy that upholds this landmark civil rights law.
The Minnesota Council on Disability reflects on the Keep Moving Forward participants that joined us at the State Fair in 2018: Master Hinkle, Mark Braun, Sherry Bartholomew and Christine Morgan. We also introduce the newest participants: Adonia Kyle, Jeff Bangsberg, Darlene Zangara, Ken Rodgers, Sam Jasmine, and Sharon Van Winkel.
