Minneapolis Advisory Committee on People with Disabilities (MACOPD)
MACOPD is a citizen based education and advocacy group formed to expand opportunities for all children and adults with disabilities throughout Minneapolis, without regard to disability or other protected class status. Additionally, we advocate for policies and programs that promote the independence of persons with disabilities and protect their right to fully participate in society.
- To improve the quality of life for individuals with disabilities in the City of Minneapolis by ensuring greater access to employment, education, housing, retail, entertainment and recreation opportunities;
- To improve relationships between public and private entities, therefore expanding employment and consumer opportunities for all members of the community;
- To improve physical and program access to all city services, programs, benefits and activities for individuals with disabilities; and
- To educate and serve as a resource to the City of Minneapolis on issues related to disabilities
Additionally, specific goals are met annually.
