Parents of and students with disabilities have important information and experience to share with policy makers that impacts systems change and improves outcomes for students throughout the state of Minnesota.
PACER realizes that it can be intimidating to share your story with a stranger. However, legislators say repeatedly that what they hear from parents makes a difference. Your story is important; we will work with you to make sure you are comfortable sharing it.
- This workshop will train and assist you in working with your legislator for changes impacting children with disabilities.
- PACER's Day at the Capitol provides participants with tools to share their stories to affect such change.
- Participants receive information on pending and proposed legislation related to children with disabilities.
