2021 Disability Advocacy Day ‘Off the Hill’

Even though we can’t go to the Capitol this year because of COVID-19, our advocacy is still as important as ever. We will have a virtual rally and “Lunch & Learn,” when leaders in the disability community will share stories and information about important policy issues this session.

The event will include a rally from 11-11:45 a.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 23 and Lunch & Learn to follow from noon to 1:30 p.m.

You will need to register in advance at  https://bit.ly/2Z0HT1Q. After you register, you will get a confirmation email. Save this confirmation email, because it will have information that you will need to join the meeting.

Mark your calendars for the 26th annual Rose Sale

The sale will be held from Feb. 16 through March 23, with the pick-up and delivery day on Tuesday, April 6.

Long stemmed red and lollipop (multicolored) roses will be available for purchase. All proceeds from LIFE Mower County’s Rose Sale benefits children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities including Down syndrome, cerebral palsy, autism and epilepsy. Your participation in LIFE’s Rose Sale provides critical funding for programs and services.
