Timely Calls/Emails Needed to Support MDSC Priority Bill

Take Just a Minute to Make a Difference

We need your support in advocating for sponsors for our important priority bill that was just filed in the MA Legislature.

Call to Action
Please take a few moments to call or send an e-mail to your State Senator and State Representative [you can find their contact info here] to ask them to co-sponsor: An Act Creating Higher Education Opportunities for Students with Intellectual Disabilities, Autism, and other Developmental Disabilities HD456 (Rep. Haddad, Rep Garballey) – SD931 (Sen. L’Italien) 

Here is a sample script you can use: 

 

Dear Representative or Senator [Name].

 

You have been a wonderful supporter of the MDSC and we appreciate your past advocacy. We are asking you to co-sponsor An Act Creating Higher Education Opportunities for Students with Intellectual Disabilities, Autism, and other Developmental Disabilities HD456 (Rep. Haddad, Rep Garballey) – SD931 (Sen. L’Italien).

 

This bill allows persons with intellectual disabilities, autism and other developmental disabilities to access state colleges and universities in order to gain skills necessary to work and live meaningful lives in the community as adults. 

  

Your help with this would be truly appreciated. [Add personal statement about your loved one with Down syndrome if applicable]

 

Thank you for your continued leadership and support!

 

You can also forward them this fact sheet and this summary by section of the bill by downloading them to your computer and attaching to an email. 

 

Note: Also please mention that you are a constituent and ask them to let you know if they sign on and then you can report back to us.
