Last year California took a major step
forward to stabilize and repair our failing developmental services
system. This didn't happen on accident it happened because
advocates made their voices heard and worked closely with
policymakers to #KeepThePromise of the Lanterman Act.
For 2017 it is even more important to
keep the momentum of our advocacy going strong. New federal
policies may be impacting our community and we need to be aware and
alert. We're still dealing with the implementation of several state
initiatives with statewide implications for our entire
community. Come to our 10th Anniversary public policy
conference on March 26 and 27th and stay in town in Sacramento for
meeting with your representatives on March 28, 2017. .
