Dear Families and Friends:
Governor Cuomo is calling for a 6% budget cut to voluntary agencies which provide services for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities effective April 1, 2013.
Unless we act immediately, these cuts, made under pressure from Washington, could result in program closings and could compromise the safety of an important group of people who do not deserve this!
Here is how you can help:
1) Please take a few minutes of your time today to call your state Assemblyman and your state Senator to voice your concern. Call today. Call tomorrow.
Letters and phone calls are extremely important. We encourage you to do both and to ask your family and friends who live in New York to do the same.
If you need assistance finding your representatives’ address or phone numbers, click here and input your address or please call CMA at 516-683-0710 and ask for Joy (Ext. 201) or Karen (Ext. 225).
