As part of The Arc New York's campaign against cuts to I/DD supports and services, we are participating in an all-day "phone rally" tomorrow - Thursday, September 24.
We ask that you take 10-15 minutes out of your day to share your story and tell state leaders how the proposed cuts will personally affect you and your loved ones.
Included are helpful resources and instructions to assist with this effort, including contact information, a call script, talking points, and general tips.
Also, if you have not already done so, please take part in the email campaign focused on the same message.
After you make your calls, please complete this short survey so The Arc New York can measure the impact of this initiative. It also helps us reach back out to legislators and build on the foundation you have laid.
We've seen that our collective voices can drive change. The efforts of parents built The Arc New York and have shaped the service system for decades since. It is time to rally that force again to preserve future supports and opportunities for New Yorkers with I/DD. Add your voice to the call!
Thank you for your support!
