ARCA Action Alert - The Legislature can't hear us...

Governor Brown's Budget holds nothing for us...

The Legislature can't hear us...

But your call will change that!

As you know, Governor Brown's updated Budget (called the "May Revise") does not include the Lanterman Coalition's Budget request. We are actively fighting this slap in the face of our community, but need more help.

Have you called these key legislators and asked them to #KeepThePromise? And more importantly, have you asked your friends, your coworkers, and your community to make the call? We have barely 48 hours left to convince the Legislature to push back against the Governor. He's fine with letting our system crumble for another year - but if you put on enough pressure, the Legislature might be willing to #KeepThePromise.

We only have from NOW and 5pm Wednesday, May 20th. Can you raise your voice and make a phone call today? Tell these legislators why it is critically important for them to support the 
Lanterman Coalition's Budget position!

Without your support, we will be fighting a losing battle. Please check out these simple steps on how to share your message, all in a 30-second phone call.
 
Click the bird to tweet to your followers and the Governor "I support the Lanterman Coalition Budget request! @JerryBrownGov #keepthepromise”. And add in your own legislators to let them hear from you!
 
Advocates came to town Monday to "Ring The Beall" and march on the Capitol. Will you join them again on Tuesday?Meet at 13th and K Street, at 9am. Bring a bell and support Senator Beall!
 
We don't just need you to make a phone call - or three. Please share this message with your friends, family, colleagues, and community.
Only by having these calls come from everyone we - all of us - can reach will we stand a chance of success. There are a lot of competing voices out there asking for funding.
The Governor's Budget is a #BrokenPromise.
Only the Legislature can change that. And only you can
 convince them to do so.
