The Minnesota Commission of the Deaf, DeafBlind & Hard of Hearing (MNCDHH) has been preparing for the 2022 legislative session. As part of the preparation, MNCDHH has met with community advocates and professionals, hosted focus groups, and sent out a statewide survey.

You are invited to join MNCDHH for a question and answer session to learn about our plans for the upcoming legislative session.

The session will be led by Alicia Lane-Outlaw, government relations director, with comments from Dr. Darlene Zangara, executive director, and Jessalyn Akerman-Frank, community and civic engagement director.

Choose one of two sessions. We are providing the same session twice so that you can choose the time that fits your schedule the best. Be sure to register in advance. 

Legislative Agenda Q&A


Review MNCDHH's legislative agenda

MNCDHH's 2022 legislative agenda with our public policy goals is now available! The current top priorities are telecoil education, DeafBlind intervener in classrooms, and inclusive requirements for Commission board appointments. We are also supporting several bills led by others. 

Review the 2022 legislative agenda now.

Send Your Questions in Advance

Please submit your questions using our questions form. We'll also take questions during the live sessions but getting your questions in advance will help MNCDHH understand what you want to know. We can't promise we'll have enough time to answer every question but questions are welcome and encouraged. Please make sure that your questions are specifically about the 2022 legislative agenda. We have a limited amount of time and want to stay on topic.  

Submit questions to question form.


Both sessions will be presented in American Sign Language (ASL) with closed captions and English voicing. For additional accommodations, please email or call 612-999-2592 at least 4 business days in advance. 


Please note that the Saturday, January 8, 2022 session will be recorded and distributed to the public. If you do not want to be recorded, you may either attend Wednesday's session or attend Saturday's session with your video turned off.
