MN-CCD  ‘Tuesdays at the Capitol’


Tuesday at the Capitol 2015

Beginning Tuesday, January 13, 2015 from 10:00 – 11:00 a.m. and every Tuesday during the legislative session, the Minnesota Consortium for Citizens with Disabilities (MN-CCD) hosts “Tuesdays at the Capitol” in the Department of Transportation Cafeteria. These events feature policy experts, legislative champions, and experienced advocates who, by sharing information and expertise, help individuals become effective advocates for themselves, their organizations, and the broader disability community.

When planning your trip to the Capitol check out this website for information about parking and Capitol construction.

While at the Capitol plan on meeting with your legislator to share your story and talk to him or her about how proposed disability related legislation will affect you. Ask your legislator to support the issue you talk about. You can find who represents you on the District Finder or call 1-800-657-3550 for legislative contact information. Advocacy tools for meeting with your legislator and telling your story can be found on this page on the MN-CCD website.

Members of MN-CD have agreed to host a Tuesday at the Capitol. Each Tuesday at the Capitol is open to everyone, regardless of whether there is an affiliation with a member agency. A schedule of hosting agencies for Tuesday at the Capitol can be found here.
