California’s safety net is rendered and torn –
we must fight to restore
benefits lost and fight to keep what remains.
As we celebrate the tenth anniversary of the Olmstead supreme court
decision – that community living is a civil right guaranteed under the Americans
with Disabilities Act – we must not lose the supports and services that
make community living possible.
Our Homes – Our Dignity – Our Civil Rights
Sacramento must stop the shell game – where California’s vast resources
are segregated into “protected” pockets – and only the general fund is
subject to the vagaries of the economy and the budget process.
