Easterseals Southern California is committed to supporting people with developmental disabilities to shape their own futures in the months and years ahead.
We are launching an advocacy effort designed to help empower, engage, and elevate the voices of people with disabilities, as well as their families, friends, and the dedicated professionals who provide them with essential support services.
Our advocacy support will provide the tools, resources and information necessary for individuals to actively participate in public policy debates and help craft solutions that are more inclusive, representative and prioritize the unique needs of people with disabilities.
Our first step is to help ensure people with disabilities have the individualized supports necessary to live in a healthy, safe, community-based environment during this global pandemic.
Join us by contacting your federal elected officials and urging them to prioritize people with disabilities in the new coronavirus relief bill. The U.S. Senate and House of Representatives are currently considering two coronavirus relief proposals that will help provide additional economic stimulus, school funding and health care, but we must make sure they also designate targeted funding to support programs for people with disabilities.
