Jan. 25 – Social Media Day of Advocacy
As New York’s nonprofit disability service sector continues to struggle with the impacts of chronic underfunding, rising inflation costs, and widespread staffing shortages, the need to secure long-term investment from the State Government has never been more urgent. Now is the time to make our voices heard and tell Governor Hochul that she must make the disability community a priority in the 2024 Executive Budget.
On January 25, CP State and its partners in New York Disability Advocates are holding a Social Media Day of Action, where we’ll be posting throughout the day on Twitter and Facebook urging Governor Hochul to include much-needed investments for the I/DD community in this year’s budget.
