LifeMyWay Disability Legislative Forum

Family Support Network

Please plan to attend the LifeMyWay Disability Legislative Forum on Monday, September 13th at 5:30–7:00pm at the Lincoln Library, 326 South 7th Street, Springfield, IL.
 
If you are unable to get needed services for yourself or your loved one…
If you believe existing systems of service for people with disabilities in Illinois are at risk of imploding…
If you fear for the future…
 
You Must Join Us!
 
Disability advocates from all over Central Illinois will be gathering to hear how our state legislators will support people with disabilities.
 
We know that our state ranks between 47th and 51st in the nation in providing services for people with disabilities depending on which benchmark you use. We know that even existing services are at risk of imploding. We need to know how our legislators plan to LEAD us into the future.
 
Plans for the forum have been in the works for months. Three legislators and one candidate have been invited. Confirmed are Senator Larry Bomke and Representative Raymond Poe. Unconfirmed at this moment are Representative Rich Brauer and Candidate Kent Delay.
 
Will they commit to supporting the needs of people with disabilities in Central Illinois?
 
Your attendance is critical. Our legislators and candidates for office must know that we are many and that we are focused. A large turnout is vital.
 
The media is invited.
 
Bring your families. Bring your friends.
