Public Media Forum

February 29, 2016

The Minnesota Governor's Council on Developmental Disabilities hosted a 2-hour Public Media Forum for Council members, Partners in Policymaking graduates and allies. Approximately 100 people were in attendance on February 29, 2016. This Forum featured panelists from all the local television channels and the two major newspapers in Minnesota. The tables were turned and the audience asked questions of the panelists. Each question is captured as a chapter heading. Thank you to all panelists, attendees and Robb Leer, the facilitator for the Forum for making this event a success.
