|PEOPLE MATTER Lobby Day– Wed, May 6th at 10:00 a.m. in the Atrium of the LOB.
In honor of Mother’s Day (May 10th), join with mothers and allies on May 6th to demand a budget showing that PEOPLE MATTER in the State of Connecticut! Families, self-advocates, direct care workers, and nonprofit providers are calling for increased funding for human services in the 2016-17 biennial budget. Stopping the devastating cuts isn’t enough! We need significant budget increases so that our loved ones, including more than 2,000 who are on the DDS residential waiting list, can get the services that they need, and caregivers can get the increases they’ve been lacking for 8 years. Connecticut is the wealthiest state in the country, and we must do better for our loved ones and those who care for them!
Please Register for May 6th!
