On June 21, the Coalition for a DSP Living Wage was at the State House for an Advocacy Day to ensure the $20 million appropriation for DSPs remains in the final FY2019 Budget! The day included families, self-advocates and community provider organizations and was another opportunity to put this issue at the forefront for legislators. Dressed in our lime green Coalition t-shirts, representatives flooded the State House and spoke to Senators and Assembly members about the critical importance of this issue. Want to see more photos?
