The Arc New York and New York Disability Advocates (NYDA) are working to oppose proposed cuts that would slash funding to OPWDD voluntary providers. We need your voices to join the call. You can use our online advocacy platform to send letters to Governor Cuomo and OPWDD opposing the cuts with just one click. A template letter, talking points and advocacy tips are also available for download in PDF and word formats. Please share these advocacy resources widely with your network and encourage families, staff, self-advocates and community members to send letters by July 1.
