|We’re Still #AllinForHCBSLet’s Keep the Message Going Strong! |
Last week we challenged you to take a photo of yourself and share a few words about why you’re #AllInForHCBS. To say we’re impressed with your engagement is an understatement. You’ve been creating photos and videos and tagging your Senators on social media to call on them to pass legislation to increase funding for the HCBS program. Thank you for raising you voice! We’ve seen stories from all corners of our community–from ANCOR members to families, to DSPs and the people they support. For example, you’ve told us you’re all in because you’re a provider and can’t compete with Chick-Fil-A for workers. Because you’re a DSP who is passionate about what you do and the people you serve. Because you’re receiving home and community-based services that are critical to your well-being and survival. Because you know that community matters to us all and that necessary funding for home and community-based care can’t wait any longer.
Looking to Join Us? The more we continue to elevate the importance of HCBS funding while the Senate is negotiating over this legislation, the better. So please help us by continuing to share your photos and stories. If you haven’t yet joined our campaign here’s how you can take part today: Download and print this template.
