The Deaf, DeafBlind and Hard of Hearing Lobby Day will be on March 6th, 2013
Lobby Day is a chance for everyday Minnesota citizens to stand up and advocate for the concerns of the Deaf, DeafBlind and Hard of Hearing. It provides people like you a chance to participate in the legislative process and speak up about concerns close to them. Legislators cannot know the importance of these issues unless they ‘hear’ from you. Your stories and testimonies are what make a difference.
Deaf, DeafBlind and Hard of Hearing Lobby Day is not only an excellent advocacy opportunity, it is a chance to meet other citizen activists, to learn about the legislative issues that affect our needs and to unite as a community.
Registration is free, but is required in order for us to schedule accomodations and legislative meetings for you. Use the embedded form below, or our registration page.
