IMPORTANT! Appropriations Hearing at the LOB

On Thursday, February 18th, the Appropriations Committee will hear testimony from people interested in NEW proposed cuts to the DMHAS Budget. We will submit testimony and go as a team to testify on this issue. Testimony should be written several days in advance and submitted to us so we can then submit it to Maura at NAMI. Remember that speakers only have 3 minutes to complete their testimony, which means all of us should practice our speeches ahead of time to ensure we come in under that limit.

We should be as excited as possible to complete this process, despite the fact that this is a very sad situation, once again. We have had a lot of good experience in this area now and should flew our muscles we have built over recent years. We are unified, we are strong, and we need to make our voices heard.

We should leave for the event around 3 PM and will plan to be there for a long time 🙂
