We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause. The situation with the Minnesota State government is a daunting one. Select staff will continue to contact state representatives to express the difficulties people with disabilities are facing during this government shutdown. If you are a Minnesota resident and this shutdown affects you or your family we encourage you to contact your legislators. Contact information can be found on our Advocacy Opportunities page.
