We STORMED the State House on Wednesday April 12, 2017. We visited our Senators and Representatives and communicated with them or their aides about issues that are important to us. We thanked them for supporting DDS and the services that we provide, but we advocated for a $5 million increase in the DDS Administration line-item (5911-1033). With this increase, the caseload crisis that we are facing will be lessened and our work load will be more manageable.
Thank you to everyone that came out — we had a great day and did a lot of important advocacy work! If you have any questions about how to become more involved in advocacy please ask your steward, and save the date for next year’s Lobby Day: April 11, 2018!
