If it wasn’t for disability parking a portion of the disability community would not be able to leave their house to buy food and participate in many other aspects of our society.

The Minnesota Council on Disability applauds Governor Walz for responding to our call to action to #MaskUpMN. This statewide policy is something that the disability community has expressed a strong desire for in order to protect our health and safety. The Council asks all Minnesotans to continue to be compassionate and wear your mask in public indoor spaces to protect our disability community.
