DLC Cross Disability Advocacy Coalition

MASSACHUSETTS - The following video features Jonathan Gale, Coordinator of the Cross Disability Advocacy Coalition at the Disability Law Center (DLC), a private, non-profit organization responsible for providing protection and advocacy for the rights of Massachusetts residents with disabilities. The Cross Disability Advocacy Coalition is a new group whose goal it is to "promote and enhance inclusion and community living opportunities for people with developmental and other disabilities through a process of developing joint policy, budget, and/or legislative objectives." One of their first activities has been the preparation of a paper that will be submitted to the Governor Deval Patrick 503 Commission. The paper will address the question of how to improve the coordination of paratransit services throughout the state, and will present concerns regarding MBTA fare increases and service cuts.
