Daily Life, Daily Dreams. That’s what the amazing staff supporting individuals with disabilities across the state of Minnesota deliver. On Tuesday, March 13th people from around Minnesota supported the ARRM/MOHR Day at the Capitol and shared with their legislators how the services they provide support people with disabilities, allowing them to live their best life possible. This year, Howry was glad to have representatives from all corners of our company including our Behavior Solutions department, Program department, and Administrative department.
Traditionally ARRM/MOHR Day at the Capitol is a day of advocacy where more than 1,000 direct care staff, managers, family members and people who receive home and community-based services rally together at the Minnesota State Capitol to make their voices heard. Attendees come from all over the state in buses and vans to make sure that legislators hear their voices and know their issues. In addition to a large rally, ARRM organizes meetings between legislators and their constituents throughout the day, and if the day coincides with a hearing of important legislation, attendees show up in strength. It is an important day that ARRM, its members, legislators, and everyone who attends looks forward to.
