The announcement from the legislative leaders and the governor comes as a result of the more than year-long, statewide bFair2DirectCare advocacy campaign. Staff, self-advocates, board members, families and volunteers from across the state have worked hard to make their representatives in Albany understand the desperate need for this funding. We are thankful that people are beginning to understand the importance of the direct care role -- and more about its true worth. This progress only reinforces the need for our persistent advocacy, our work will need to continue as diligently in the years to come. Let's celebrate this step forward and dedicate ourselves to keeping this momentum going.We need every member of the developmental disability community to continue to advocate with us. Will you consider joining our movement and helping expand our networks so that we can spread our message to the widest possible audience?
