As the part of the nation's most established and respected membership association for rehabilitation professionals, we welcome you to the Website of the Minnesota Rehabilitation Association (MRA). MRA members work to eliminate barriers and increase employment opportunities for people with disabilities. We provide our members opportunities for advocacy and increased awareness of issues through professional development and access to current research topics.

We invite you to join our growing community by becoming a member today!
As I mentioned at our Spring Conference, the 25th Anniversary of the ADA is coming up in July.
I have been wondering what we can do, as an organization, to reflect on the 25 years of the ADA.
Our historian tried to look back in our archives, for me, to find any kind of recognition or acknowledgement regarding awards to individuals in our field who have a disability.
He was not able to find much in his search, so I am coming to you for your help in this matter.
What is being asked of you is to think about our field and come up with someone who may have been or someone who is working in the field of Vocational Rehab either with the State, a nonprofit or Workmen’s Comp.
You are welcome to either just send me their name or contact information. Or if you wish, a short write-up about them.
I am not sure what yet I will do with all of this information, other than to share it with all of us or perhaps beyond. But, with it being the anniversary, our organization needs bring forward and recognize those who have helped in the betterment of those who have a disability and who also has a disability of their own.
Thank you for any help you can give and feel free to either e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 651-265-2371.
Remember enjoy every moment.
