Standing With Each Other
On March 14, 2017, more than 1,000 direct support professionals, managers, and people who receive supports rallied together at the Minnesota State Capitol. As part of the ARRM/MOHR Day at the Capitol, Howry staff and clients joined in with others. Attendees came from all over Minnesota in buses and vans to make sure that legislators hear their voices and know their issues.
In addition to a large rally, constituents held meetings with their legislators throughout the day. People let legislators know of their concern regarding wages, staffing, and case loads. They also wrote letters, spoke to their representatives, made awesome looking signs, and supported one another throughout the day. It is an important day that everyone who attends looks forward to.
