California’s Current Budget Crisis and the Impact to the I/DD Community!
June 17 @ 2:00 pm - 3:15 pm
For community leaders and advocates for the Intellectual and Developmental Disability community who want to know what is going on with the budget and the political landscape, and effective and efficient ways to advocate.
Guest presenter: Marty Omoto, Executive Director of the California Disability Community Action Network, a non-partisan organization which links thousands of Californians with developmental and other disabilities, people with traumatic brain injuries, the blind, the deaf, their families, community organizations and providers, direct care, homecare, and other workers, and other advocates to provide information on state and local public policy issues. Marty brings over 30 years of experience advocating at the national, state and local levels. Marty’s publication, CDCAN Disability Rights News, initiated in 1987, is now distributed electronically to over 65,000 people, as often as several times a day during the fast-moving legislative budget phase, with announcements and reports on hearings and legislative sessions. Please RSVP.
