CEDARS NEEDS YOUR HELP TODAY!

 Cedars relies on government funding to ensure individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities have access to essential and lifechanging services.

Recently, Cedars and other service providers faced possible cuts of $500 million as part of the May Revise of the California's state budget.

 

The good new is: the California state Assembly and Senate rejected those budget cuts and will begin negotiating their revised proposals with the Governor very soon.

IT IS NOT OVER!

We are asking EVERYONE to contact their state legislators and urge them to support the Budget Committee's proposal.

Your legislators need to hear from you right now -- every voice counts.

Social Media as an Advocacy Tool

Your legislators are on Twitter and Facebook -- tag them when posting about how the budget shortfalls will affect Cedars! 

Legislators hold Town Hall conversations on social media platforms, which is another great way to plead Cedars budget case and tell your personal story. For instance, you might post on Facebook asking your followers to write letters and you could tag Marin's Mike McGuire @SenatorMikeMcGuire and Assemblyman Marc Levine @AsmMarcLevine. Or you could write a post on Twitter to them @ilike_mike or @AsmMarcLevine.

 

Social Media can be a powerful advocacy tool -  legislators accounts are closely monitored for constituents' messages.

Please help us use social media for social change!

Since 1919, Cedars has been inspiring individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities to lead creative, productive, and joyous lives.
