WE WANT TO HEAR YOUR STORIES!
Disability Rights Advocates, Neighborhood Legal Services, Western Center on Law & Poverty, and Kirkland & Ellis LLP represent a coalition of low-income individuals, healthcare clinics, and disability support centers who have filed a lawsuit to challenge the Governor’s cuts using his line-item veto authority. The Governor’s line-item vetoes drastically reduce social services and threaten a devastating impact on sick and disabled individuals and domestic violence survivors, among many others.
If you have experienced the effects of these cuts, we want you to share your stories with us, the public, and with decision-makers. Your stories will help the media and the public understand what the Governor’s cuts mean to the lives of people who depend on these vital services.
It is crucial that we get your stories by Sept. 16, 2009.
Please email your story to: firstname.lastname@example.org or submit your story to http://www.probono.net/unite. If you have any questions, please contact Kaitlin Anderson at email@example.com.
