Last Chance!!! Please Urge the Governor to Support Direct Support Professionals

There are about two weeks left until the NYS Budget is finalized. Please ask everyone you know to help us make a strong push on social media from now until the budget is finalized on April 1st! 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.

Without this additional funding, agencies that support people with developmental disabilities won’t be able to provide quality programs and services that these individuals desperately need! The Governor MUST support #bFair2DirectCare in the three way negotiations with the Senate and Assembly.


How You Can Help

Post to Facebook and Twitter EVERY DAY and tag Governor Cuomo until the final budget is passed!

Please use #bFair2DirectCare and @NYGovCuomo in every tweet and post.
