Dear Coalition for a DSP Living Wage:
We are grateful to everyone who participated in our advocacy activities and events throughout the fiscal year. Your dedication was critical to our success. However, we would be remiss if we did not thank the legislative leaders who fought so hard for us and who made sure a $20 million line item was added into the final FY19 Budget for the Direct Support Professional workforce. Saying thank you and showing our gratitude is critical and we ask you to please take a moment and participate in this request. We need our legislative leaders to fight for us and in turn, we need to make our voice heard and thank them when they do.
