#beFair2DirectCare - CALL TO ACTION

CALL THE GOVERNOR AND YOUR LEGISLATORS TODAY!!!!!

PLEASE TELL GOVERNOR CUOMO TO BE OUR HERO and include the $45 million in NEW living wage funding in his budget amendments!

Governor Cuomo failed to include the #bFair2DirectCare campaign's $45 million request to begin funding a living wage for direct support professionals in his initial budget proposal.

BUT, the Governor has another chance to redeem himself and be a hero to all of the people we serve and their families.

The Governor and his staff are well aware of the #bFair2DirectCare $45 million request.

They have seen all of the #bFair2DirectCare rallies, media stories, visits to his top staff, letters to the editor and the Times Union editorial (click here)

#bFair2DirectCare doesn't require a lot of explaining but it does require a heavy dose of reminding.

Everyone needs to CALL OR WRITE the Governor, your Senator, and your Assembly member during the week of January 30 and tell them:

"I am calling on behalf of the #bFair2DirectCare Campaign for a Living Wage.    Governor Cuomo MUST provide $45 million in his budget amendments! Funding is critical to the health, safety and well-being of people with developmental disabilities and it's the right thing to do for the people who work tirelessly caring for them".

Three things you can do!!!

1. Governor (518) 474 -1041 and press 2 to speak to an assistant.  If you get no response, you can then press 1 to leave a voice mail.

2. Senate switchboard - (518) 455 - 2800 - and ask for your Senator.  You can find your Senator at http://www.nysenate.gov/   Urge your Senator to Call the Governor and tell him to BFair2DirectCare and fund the $45 million .

3. Assembly switchboard (518) 455-4100 - and ask for your Assembly member.  You can find your Assemblymember at http://assembly.state.ny.us/  Urge your Assemblymember to Call the Governor and tell him to BFair2DirectCare and fund the $45 million .

OR TO WRITE LETTERS:  

The Honorable Andrew M. Cuomo, Governor of New York State
NYS State Capitol Building, Albany, NY 12224

Go to the New York Families for Disability Rights (NYFDR) website to find your local legislators  and call or write them to tell the Governor to include the $45 million  to BFair2DirectCare.  There will be sample letters on the website.

Please have staff, families,  and everyone CALL AND OR SEND LETTERS  to the Governor, your local legislators, and your local newspaper. 

It is especially important that the Governor hear from Families, Direct Support Professionals and other low wage workers who support people with developmental disabilities

PLEASE TELL GOVERNOR CUOMO NOT TO FORGET US!

STAFF WHO SUPPORT PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES DESERVE A LIVING WAGE!

Send this message to your staff, families and groups.As a constituent you are very important to the Governor and your elected officials and you must tell them what

Act NOW or it will be too late!  The Governor's Budget 21-day amendments are due on February 7th and his 30-day amendments are due on  February 16th!
