Senators (R) Bill Brady & Kirk Dillard, both candidates for Illinois Governor, declared commitment to keep disabled confined to state institutions

as shared by our friends at 'Going Home: A Full Life in the Community' ...

Senators Bill Brady and Kirk Dillard, both candidates for Illinois Governor, recently declared their commitment to keeping people with disabilities confined to life in state institutions, depriving them of the opportunity to live in the community. This is unacceptable. Please take a moment to post on their Facebook pages TODAY and let them know that we will not support any candidate who does not support people with disabilities. We must not allow politicians to use people with disabilities to advance their political agendas. Please "share" this information also.
