Blind Legislative Informational Networking Day 2020 HAS BEEN CANCELED.
In light of all of the developments with the Corona Virus and the Governor’s State of Emergency declaration at his Tuesday, March 10th press conference, it has become necessary to cancel the BLIND Event at the request of the State House. The State House Event Scheduler sent out the following statement: “In order to prevent the spread of COVID-19, all sponsored events at the State House are postponed for the next 30 days effective immediately.”
We know this is disappointing, but the health and well-being of everyone is of highest priority for all of us. As we have observed the number of COVID-19 cases grow in the Greater Boston area and across the country, the Number One priority for all of us must be to ensure that everyone remains safe.
Registration & Follow Up:
Presently, we do not have any details on the progress of the budget or funding levels, however, if you would still like to have us send you information as we learn more about the budget, please complete the online registration form for the BLIND Event at: www.perkins.org/statehouse and we will share details as they become available. By completing the registration form, this will allow us to email you information as it becomes available.
