We desperately need you to speak up and take action on a vital issue affecting the lives of people with developmental disabilities across California.

Governor Gavin Newsom has proposed to delay a $1 billion investment in critical supports and services for Californians with developmental disabilities.

The impact of delaying this desperately needed funding will be nothing short of a cut to services.

Californians with disabilities and the professionals who serve them deserve a chance to live full and equitable lives. Taking this action now can ensure access to the quality services that individuals with disabilities and their families rely on and deserve.

Join The Lanterman Coalition in urging the Legislature to reject the Governor’s proposal delaying $1 billion for the disability community, and make the investment on July 1, 2024, as promised.

Californians with disabilities and the professionals who serve them deserve a chance to live full and equitable lives. Thank you for your ongoing support and advocacy!

You can be an advocate for people with disabilities by contacting your State and Federal Representatives. Call or email your legislator today to make a difference.
