Friends, we need your support!
This is a lot of information and we hope you will take a moment to weed through it. Your support is critical right now!
As part of our overall advocacy campaign against cuts to I/DD supports and services, we will engage in an all-day “phone rally” on Thursday, September 24. We ask that you take 10-15 minutes out of your day to share your story and how these cuts will personally affect you and your loved ones. Below are some helpful resources and instructions to assist with this effort.
Also, if you have not already done so, please take part in our letter campaign focused on the same message. Every contact made makes a difference. We must be willing to ask our legislators to represent our needs and honor their oath of office to serve our most vulnerable people. https://p2a.co/gotSDnp
After you make your calls, please complete this short survey so we can measure the impact of this initiative. It also helps us reach back out to legislators and build on the foundation you have laid. https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/7CXWTCH
