Advocacy is the heart of what we do. Since 1985, the Commission has been advocating with community members for public policies that increase communication access and equal opportunity for deaf, deafblind and hard of hearing children and adults. By working together we have made significant changes in state laws and rules and created or increased funding for programs that support communication access and equal opportunity.
Every five years the Commission conducts a strategic planning process. Typically, hundreds to thousands of Minnesotans provide input by participating in one on one interviews, focus groups, or online surveys.
Information about the Commission's current strategic 5-year plan is available in both English and ASL.
