Big Lake A-Team (includes Oshkosh, Neenah, Menasha, Omro, and Winneconne) is hosting an event for parents to meet their elected legislators

Voice Your Voice by September 2, 2014

The deadline is September 2, 2014 to voice your opinion about Wisconsin Department of Health and Human Services proposed new Waiver Renewal Plan.

 

As written, the plan does not specifically address facility based employment and pre-vocational training for the cognitively disabled. The omission of these choices from the ruling has the potential for being the single largest threat to services for adults with disabilities since the inception of the Americans with Disabilities Act.

 

Our call to action has received attention from the DHS, but we need you to voice your opinion today to keep the momentum going. Remember deadline is Tuesday Sept 2.

 

We encourage you to write a letter to the editor of your local newspaper, as well as submit a letter to your State legislators. The A-Team Wisconsin has posted several letters already published across the state, http://ateamwisconsin.org/.

 

The Post Crescent has received and published two letters to the editor:

 

Disabled Rely on Facility Based Services

 

Group Homes, Workshops at Risk
