Advocacy Without Borders: Connecting thousands of people with disabilities, mental health needs, seniors, families, workers, low income families to disability rights, senior rights, civil rights and unified action(POSTED MAY 19, 2010) MARTY OMOTO COMMENTARY - "PRAYING FOR TIME" SACRAMENTO, CALIF - These are - and have been for the past several years - hard times for our community of people with disabilities, mental health needs, people with traumatic brain and other injuries, people with MS, Alzheimer's and other disorders, seniors, their families, community organizations and workers who provide supports and services.
Year after year after year of facing threats of cuts or outright elimination of programs and services, rollbacks in eligibility, and actual loss of needed services, and loss of jobs or the constant fear of losing all of those things. Many in our communities - including those people with disabilities, mental health needs, seniors in the Asian and Pacific Islander, Latino and other communities of color - do not understand the workings of state government and politics nor have first hand information of what will or will not happen.

If that increase is not extended, California's budget hole would increase by billion, placing enormous pressure on policymakers to make major additional spending cuts.
