San Jose (and across the State) Keep the Promise Rally

16 Jun

Just got this letter and am posting it here: Rallies are being held to advocate to protect the budget for disability services in California.  This letter focuses on the San Jose Rally, but also gives links for rallies across the state.

We need to do what we can to preserve services here in our state.  Now is the time to act–call, fax, attend a rally.



Friday, June 19

12:15 pm to 1:00 pm

San Jose City Hall Plaza

200 E. Santa Clara St.


Join Senator Jim Beall for an important rally with consumers and advocates from the developmental disabilities community to urge Governor Brown to approve the Legislature’s modest budget increase and reform proposal for the developmental disabilities services programs.


Programs are in crisis and closing at record numbers. The gains obtained in the Legislature’s budget cannot be lost.  We must keep lobbying because 280,000 people are counting on us.

And as you lobby the Governor and Leadership remember: Your stories matter and your advocacy has an impact.  Join us Friday and share your story directly with the Governor by following the instructions below.


Leave your message via these options:

Phone: 916-445-2841 // Fax: 916-558-3160

Advocates across the state have organized a statewide campaign to tell Governor Brown to support the budget and reform proposals for developmental services! Learn more about how you can participate and get involved.


Keep The Promise Rallies will be taking place at the following locations:


New! San Jose



New! San Francisco

New! Los Angeles (2 rallies)

Online Vigil
