In order for the $45 million to be included in the final state budget, we need Governor Cuomo’s support!

So everyone must do one more thing & CALL GOVERNOR CUOMO!

The #bFair2DirectCare coalition is implementing a coordinated call-in campaign to the Governor’s office!

Each region of the state will have a designated date to call the Governor’s office and encourage his support:

• Western NY & Southern Tier - Tuesday, March 21st
• Hudson Valley and Westchester - Wednesday, March 22nd
• Capital District, North Country and Central NY - Thursday, March 23rd
• Long Island - Friday, March 24th
• New York City - Monday, March 27th

Call Governor Cuomo - (518) 474 -8390. After the recorded message, press 1 to leave a message

Call and say:
"I am calling on behalf of the #bFair2DirectCare Campaign for a living wage for the direct support staff that assist people with developmental disabilities.
Governor Cuomo MUST join the Legislature and provide $45 million in the final budget! Funding is critical to the health, safety and well-being of people with developmental disabilities!"
After you call, ask three friends or neighbors to call to maximize our impact! ... See MoreSee Less

Community, Work & Independence, Inc. participated on the panel of experts! We were proud to have the opportunity to support the Disability Awareness Training for Law Enforcement! ... See MoreSee Less

The Washington County Sheriff's Office was glad to host Disability Awareness Training for Law Enforcement conducted by the Justice Center for the Protection of People with Special Needs. Members attended from Washington County Sheriff's Office, Washington County Department of Public Safety, New York State Police,
Warren County Sheriff's Office and Glens Falls City Police. The attendees also heard from a panel of subject matter experts who represented the community stakeholders in our area. This training will hopefully help our agencies better serve this sometimes misunderstood group of citizens.

We are in the final stretch of the NYS budget battle, so we need everyone to make a strong push on social media from now until the budget is finalized on April 1st!

As you may know, both the NYS Senate and Assembly included $45 million in their one-house budgets as a first step in giving DSPs a living wage. Now it's up to the Governor.

We need to Governor to support #bFair2DirectCare in the three way negotiations with the Senate and Assembly.

The #bFair2DirectCare Coalition is asking all members to encourage their families, staff, and self-advocates to tweet and post to Facebook and tag Governor Cuomo EVERY DAY until the final budget has passed! We need to make a strong effort to encourage Governor Cuomo to endorse and include the $45 million for DSPs in the final budget agreement. We want the Governor to get hundreds of tweets/Facebook posts from #bFair2DirectCare supporters every day.

Please be sure to use #bFair2DirectCare and @NYGovCuomo (Twitter) and Governor Andrew Cuomo (Facebook) in every tweet and post! Stay tuned for sample posts.. or make up your own! ... See MoreSee Less
