Lobby Day 1

Over 200 agency staff, self-advocates and family members came to Albany on February 26 & 27 to lobby New York State Legislators to gain support for funding for services for individuals with developmental disabilities from birth through their lifespan.

Although it was alot of hard work - walking to and from Legislators' offices as well as the Senate and Assembly chambers - you see smiles in the photos below, because the legislators heard us and voiced support.

Lobby days may be over but advocacy continues.  We encourage everyone to visit their representatives in their district offices and invite them to your programs so they can see for themselves the difference our services make in the lifes of the individuals and their families.
