To our readers: 

What an exciting time to live in Minnesota! With many of the pandemic restrictions behind us, we are finding opportunities to rediscover our neighbors and communities. Here at Access Press, we are embracing this rediscovery with an Award Celebration and fundraising event at the McNamara Center on November 3, starting at 5:30 p.m. 

Unique in the nation, Access Press is a completely independent newspaper that serves the community of people with disabilities as an information resource. Nobody “owns” Access Press and that is significant. But as an independent news source, we depend upon the donations of our readership, as well as people in the community who support our mission to “promote the social inclusion and legal rights of people with disabilities by providing a forum for news, features, opinion and conversation to benefit people who are often invisible and marginalized in mainstream society.” We are proud to sponsor this event which will raise needed funds to help us continue the Access Press mission for generations to come! 

Tickets may be purchased at our website, www.accesspress.org, for $75 per person or $600 per table of eight. Contact Jane Larson or Catherine Hunter at [email protected] or at 612-562-7803 if you have questions, need more information, or wish to help sponsor this event.  

We look forward to seeing you on November 3.
