About this site
The purpose of Deaf Rights Resources is to provide a single entry point to Minnesota laws, statutes, rules and regulations that affect the lives of deaf, deafblind and hard of hearing people. The site also provides advocacy resources. We have tried to make it as comprehensive as possible and easy to navigate. It is a work in progress. This site is hosted by the Minnesota Commission of the Deaf, DeafBlind & Hard of Hearing (MNCDHH).
Want information on federal laws? Deaf Rights Resources has a limited section under "Federal Laws" and will continue to update it. We will also provide links to existing websites that we think have done a good job interpreting the laws and helping individuals to self-advocate.
MNCDHH is a state agency that advocates for equal opportunity in health care, education, employment, technology and access to public services with the 20% of Minnesotans who are deaf, deafblind and hard of hearing. We do this by promoting civic engagement and self-advocacy. Please visit our website to learn more about the work we are doing. To get involved, sign up for our email alerts.
