Webinar: Drastic Cuts to California State Budget Will Significantly Impact People with Disabilities

This webinar was recorded May 15, 2020. On Thursday, May 14, Governor Gavin Newsom will release his revised state budget, which will include the anticipated significant drop in tax revenue and the proposed cuts in order to balance the budget. It is expected that every part of the budget will be dramatically affected, including funding for services for people with disabilities, IHSS, education, and mental health support. The legislature will be considering the budget over the next few weeks and will finalize it by early June – an extremely rushed process. These cuts come at a time when our community is one of the most vulnerable to the coronavirus pandemic and the effects of the shutdown. This webinar will cover the details of the budget cuts and the important advocacy work we must quickly assemble in order to limit their negative impact.
