Telling Your Story

When you open the Telling Your Story App created by the Minnesota Governor’s Council on Developmental Disabilities, it reads, “You can change the system through the power of your personal story. You can change a law. You can help make laws or change existing policies and practices. This app will help you.” This could never be more true. 

Using this app is an innovative way to tell your story this legislative session.  Legislators prioritize meetings and opportunities to listen to their own constituents. By utilizing the Telling Your Story App, you can easily share your expertise with your representative and senator. Yes, your expertise. You are an authority on how publicly-funded services and supports work or do not work for you or your family. It is your responsibility to share your expertise with them.
