Dear Supporters of CP Nassau,
We hope this messages finds you and all your loved ones well!
Thank you to everyone who participated in the Virtual Rally to Save our Services (SOS) on December 9th. One thousand people were on the Zoom session! More wanted to sign on but the session maxed out!!!
The event was organized by family groups, including NYC Family Advocacy Information Resource & LI Advocacy Network for the Developmentally Disabled, ENYDDA, NYADD and NYC Developmental Disabilities (DD) Councils: Brooklyn, Bronx, Manhattan, Queens and Staten Island.
Speakers included Legislators, Participants, Direct Support Professionals, Family Members and other staff: all did a great job making a case for the vital importance of this issue!
If you missed the session it was recorded and the link is posted on NYC FAIR website.
There was significant encouragement to keep the momentum going; to continue the fight! There will be many more opportunity to tell Governor Cuomo to restore the cuts and support our individuals.
The “To Do” for today, tomorrow and every day after that is to blast the Governor with the message that he MUST SAVE OUR SERVICES!
To quote Assemblywoman Missy Miller: The Developmental and Intellectual disabilities population must be made a PRIORITY! The priority is to save our services for the residential program AND the adult day program!!
Here are your choices to communicate with the Governor and your local legislative representatives:
Call Governor Cuomo @ 1-518-474-8390
Write Governor Cuomo
The Honorable Andrew M. Cuomo
Governor of New York State

Please see the information from NYC FAIR & L.I.A.N.D.D. – A reminder to keep this communication going!
