Imagine the power of 4 million Californians with disabilities voting


News, Information, and Opportunities for California’s Intellectual & Developmental Disability Community.


The disability system is facing a serious workforce shortage and people with disabilities are either going without services, or not getting the full services they need. Last year, this Legislature passed a historic budget that included a “phased-in” five-year plan to close the $1.8 billion funding gap to the disability system that would ultimately stabilize the direct support workforce. Unfortunately, the Governor has decided to cut $1 billion in investments that were scheduled to occur in 2024. This is unacceptable, and will have devastating consequences to a system that is already underfunded.

TAKE ACTION! Urge your elected officials to reject the Governor’s proposal to delay funding for disability services.  It can’t wait.

Let’s build a future that will provide Californians with disabilities, their families and the professionals who provide their supports and services a chance to live full and equitable lives. Let’s get on a PATH TO THRIVE!
