Town Hall Meeting February 26, 2011, 7:30am, Cache County
Administration Building, 179 North Main Logan. This is it!! The final
push for funding Social Services in the State of Utah. If you are
unsatisfied, frustrated, discouraged, or angry about the way our State
has treated the disabled community with the continued LACK of funding
– this is your final chance to voice your concern. Don’t hold back –
this meeting is for YOU to express how you feel!!! Raise your hand and
let our leaders know your frustrations. Do not let someone else speak
for you … speak up.

Points of interest – Lyle Hillyard is the, Chair of the Executive
Appropriations Committee. Which means HE is the head person who
controls the money in the State. He will be in attendance to LISTEN to
what you have to say. This is your BEST chance to be heard!

Grassroots Advocacy Partnership at the Capitol

February 17th 2011
12:00 Noon to 2:00 PM
In the Copper Room
(Senate building off of the cafeteria – LUNCH WILL NOT BE PROVIDED)
Join us as we discuss the current legislative session, potential cuts, and policy changes
affecting individuals and families living with disabilities.

We will receive updates from:
LCPD – Legislative Coalition for People with Disabilities
DLC – Disability Law Center
Independent Living Centers
GAP regions – Grassroots Advocacy Partnership
Legislators invited to attend
This is a crucial time in policy and budget making, with the state of the economy
it is vital that legislators who make decisions are educated about the services and funding
they provide.

If you are unable to attend please contact your Representative and Senator,
let them know how services have made a difference for your family.

For more information about the grassroots
advocacy partnership contact brooke Wilson,
