Please join the Minnesota Commission of the Deaf, DeafBlind & Hard of Hearing for Deaf, DeafBlind & Hard of Hearing Lobby Day! This is a great opportunity for you to share information with legislators about issues that are important to you. This year, the Commission is working on legislation related to communication access in our daily lives. Your participation will make a huge difference!
