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

Yesterday thousands of DSPs across the State went to work with their sleeping bags and toothbrushes, knowing that they could end up working well past the end of their designated shifts. They are part of New York's essential workforce, keeping tens of thousands of people safe, secure, and supported during this blizzard. To all the DSPs who are essential Chapter team members and put their job first -- sometimes sacrificing time with their own families -- THANK YOU.
To Governor Cuomo. You have toured with police and fire and EMS. You have visited the workers who keep the trains running and the roads open. Time to visit the compassionate and wonderful New Yorkers who support people with developmental disabilties who don't back down when the snow gets deep. Time to join #bFair2DirectCare and make sure they are paid a living wage.
DSPs at work today, post a photo and tell us what you are doing to help the people you support during this blizzard.
