Stand up for your rights!
Calling all parents and family members
of persons with developmental disabilities.
Your presence is critical at the Candidates Forum—Tuesday, October 18th!
As two strong and longtime advocates of people with developmental disabilities exit their seats in the California State Senate, we must make our voices heard to those who will replace them! We must show those candidates running for office that we represent a significant group of voters who will cast their ballots for those legislators who value the lives of people with disabilities. Please plan to attend this important Candidate’s Forum and show them that your loved one must not be forgotten when making important decisions about funding for people with disabilities. Help your family member continue to receive the affordable, quality services that is his/her right and future. Mark your calendars and plan to attend!

We Won! An important message from CEO, Rebecca Lienhard
Your voice was heard!!!! The Lanterman Coalition has been in a fight for the survival of the California Developmental Services system for well over a year now, and today, WE WON.
On Monday, February 29th, the Assembly (MCO = 61-16, DD Funding = unanimous) and the Senate (MCO = the needed 2 Republican votes, DD Funding = unanimous) passed the Two-bill Package in Support of People with Developmental Disabilities.
While the agreement didn’t achieve everything needed, it serves as a critically important step to provide relief now to stop the collapse of the community safety net and move towards a future of hope and full participation in communities across this state. This is a major victory for our community.
Now it is time to say “Thank you!”
If your legislator voted to help save our services and #KeepThePromise of the Lanterman Act, please thank them. Not sure if they did support us? Then ask them, call the office and find out. Send a personal note of ‘thanks’. Your legislators will appreciate the gesture.
Even though the governor hasn’t signed the deal yet (he will because he negotiated the legislation package), make sure to leave a simple thank message to our Secretary of Health and Human Services, Diana Dooley(916) 654-3454, and our Interim DDS Director, Mike Wilkening (916) 654-1897(916) 654-1897.
