Become a member of the Coalition

As someone who cares about, cares for, or is an individual with an intellectual/developmental disability (I/DD), I support the objectives of the Coalition for a DSP Living Wage. I pledge to work alongside the Coalition and its Steering Committee to obtain increased wages for Direct Support Professionals (DSPs) working with individuals with I/DD in New Jersey.


The Steering Committee for the Coalition for a DSP Living Wage reserves the right to terminate the membership of any individual or organization who expresses viewpoints that are inconsistent with the Coalition’s goals and objectives, or who acts in a manner that distracts from the Coalition’s work.

Now-that-you-have-taken-the-first-stepNow that you’ve taken the first step and joined with disability advocates, family members, and individuals with I/DD like you, the coalition encourages you to stay connected, stay informed, and get involved.

We Hope You’ll HELP US by Doing the Following:

Respond-StepRespond to related action alerts put out by the Coalition and share those alerts with others who also care about DSP wages

Write-StepSign onto letters, or write my own letters, supporting the work of the Coalition, using the important information and terminology outline in the Coalition’s talking point

ReachOut-StepReach out to my elected leaders and my local press to spread the word about the Coalition for a DSP Living Wage and its mission, being sure to use the important information and terminology outline in the Coalition’s talking points.
