Action Alert: Your Voice is Needed at the Capitol
Direct Support Professionals are essential
in the lives of people with disabilities

The  Best Life Alliance is asking everyone who cares about the future for people with disabilities to email or call their Minnesota legislators.

Taking action is simple:

  1. Find out who represents you here
  2. In the Email Subject Line insert: Make Disability Services a priority in 2019
  3. Share your personal story in your own words:

  • Talk about the value of service providers like PAI, residential providers and their employees.
  • Discuss the impacts of staffing shortages or high turnover.
  • Remind them that service providers were already in the midst of a workforce shortage crisis, and that crisis has been further compounded by a 7% cut.
  • Tell your legislators that you are counting on them to take action this session to strengthen the disability services sector.

Your advocacy makes a difference.
