Forward to your groups! Mobilize your families! Energize your staff!
The Legislature is listening and they included our $45 million in the Senate and Assembly one-house budget bills
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!
