Advocate to Support People with Disabilities

at Disability Day at the Capitol hosted by ARRM and MOHR

Tuesday, March 12th

Join ARRM and Living Well Disability Services as we rally in the Capitol Rotunda and fill the halls of the State Office Building and Minnesota Senate Building with our message of the importance of disability services and adequately funding disability services now and into the future.

Your voice matters! Participate in our advocacy efforts and ensure that Minnesota includes and values people of all abilities. By speaking out in support of people impacted by disabilites we can break down the walls and live as inclusive communities.

Rally in the Capitol Rotunda at 10:00 AM
Join staff, self-advocates, families and legislative champions from across the state for a rally in the Capitol Rotunda at 10:00 am. We will have our banner visible over the second floor balcony.
