Please help save Illinois Home Services Programs! 2015 State Budget - Call Gov. Rauner!

as shared from Chicago ADAPT, please take time to call Gov. Rauner's office by Feb 12th - Please share this information!

Illinois -- Gov. Rauner releases his first budget Feb. 18 and there is talk of him cutting Human Services programs by 20 percent! This includes the Home Services program, which pays the wages of the assistants more than 30,000 disabled people rely on to help us through each day.

This is intolerable! ADAPT is in action mode pressuring the governor and you can help by being one of hundreds to call the governor's office Monday Feb 12. Just say: "I have a message for the governor. I want him to meet with ADAPT!"

That small act is very helpful. Thank you!

Please call at least one of the numbers below and recruit others to do the same.
