Meet the NYS Senator and Assemblyman Advocating For Those With Disabilities
As an organization that serves the intellectual and developmentally disabled community, we know first-hand that it’s important to get to know the government leaders that advocate and elevate the voices of those individuals and families. At Hudson Regional LTC Pharmacy, we keep an open line of communication with the New York State government leaders who are on the committees and passing legislation for those with disabilities.
If you want to make a difference in the lives of those living with disabilities, it’s important to get involved in the political process. By reaching out to your state government leaders, you can help ensure that their voices are heard and that they have the resources they need to live happy and productive lives.
There are a few different ways that you can get involved politically and let your voice be heard.
- One of the best ways is to attend committee hearings and speak with your legislators about important issues.
- You can also write letters to your representatives, call their offices to express your concerns, or send an email.
- Consider supporting disability advocacy organizations with your time, volunteering, or in a monetary way. These organizations work to promote the rights of those living with disabilities, and they rely on the support of individuals like you to continue their important work.
By reaching out to your state government leaders, you can help ensure that the voices of those with disabilities are heard and that they have the resources they need to live happy and productive lives. Learn more about two NYS government leaders who advocate for those with disabilities and how to contact them.
