The Minnesota Council on Disability analyzes legislative initiatives to advise how proposed policies will impact the disability community. Our goal is to help all policymakers understand how their decisions affect Minnesotans with disabilities.

2018 Legislative Forum
The Legislative Forum is an annual preview of disability issues for the legislative session. It provides an opportunity for MCD, state legislators, state agency officials, disability advocates, and other disability organizations to lay out their priorities for the coming session. The public is welcome to ask questions of people who develop, design, and implement disability-related policy.
