I have a 29 year old grandson I've raised. We need to have services. Please increase this very needed 8% overall increase to service providers.

Thanks for adding your voice.

As a support group facilitator for parents and family members of people with developmental/intellectual disabilities and a mother of a child with Down syndrome, I urge you to sign this petition. Covid-19 has already hurt families in many ways, cutting services will only make matters worse. It is our responsibility to advocate for our community members who are not able to, so please, share this petition with others.

Thanks for adding your voice.

Hello as a sister, a friend, and teacher of the special education community I have signed this petition as voice for those who can not cognitively make a decision for their well being. Cutting funding and service ours from our community would be hurtful financially, mentally, physically, and emotionally to many individuals and their families.

Thanks for adding your voice.

Please don't cut services to children with developmental disabilities. We need services more than ever! Caring for a child with autism during the shelter in place has been very, very difficult. We need MORE help, not less!

Thanks for adding your voice.

For too long people with developmental disabilities have been left behind. We have only recently started to do better. Let’s not regress—these beautiful people matter.

Thanks for adding your voice.

I work at Creative Growth Art Center in Oakland, an art program for people with development disabilities. Our program provides vital support to our artists, and we've been working tirelessly to prevent the isolation and depression of COVID-19. Please don't defund the programs that so many people depend on to survive, thrive, and live fulfilling lives.
