The CA Senate Committee on Human Services will vote today on AB 1244 (Chesbro), a bill that would give people with developmental disabilities the option to keep the services they have now or to choose Self-Determination.
Will you help make self-determination a reality for the thousands of Californians who want more control over their lives?

- Individuals would have the authority and a budget to control their own services and supports, and to transform their lives by focusing their supports on key life goals
- Individuals could hire and manage their own direct support workers and dismiss them if it isn’t the right fit
- Direct support workers employed directly by the individual could seek to improve their jobs and the program by forming a union if they choose
It’s up to us to make sure our State Senators do the right thing.
Write to your State Senator today and tell them: Vote for AB 1244 to support self-determination for people with disabilities and good jobs for their direct support workforce.
