People First NJ People First NJ unites people to advocate and advance the rights and opportunities of people with disabilities. Advocacy By and For People with Disabilities

In 29 states in the US, as well as in Canada, the UK, Germany, New Zealand, Austria, Hong Kong, Japan, and Italy, self advocates have joined a grassroots movement organized and maintained entirely by individuals with disabilities, and dedicated solely to advancing the rights of citizens with disabilities across the globe.

This International Movement is known as People First. People First organizations are unique in their philosophy that people with disabilities, no matter their level or type of disability, are not only fully capable of taking ownership of their advocacy goals, but should work to become as independent as possible; setting their own agendas and maintaining their own network of volunteers and partners

People with disabilities face obstacles that are unique compared to the rest of the population, as well as unique among themselves. Everyone faces different struggles in life, and people with disabilities face additional struggles that other people do not.

ACI and the NJ Council on Developmental Disabilities organized a bus trip to Washington, DC on Monday, September 25th at 9:00 AM to join advocates from across the country in opposition to the Graham-Cassidy proposal. This is the newest effort by the US Senate to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act. According the AUCD, this bill, like previous proposals, would make huge cuts to and place caps on the Medicaid program. A hearing on the bill will take place at 2 pm at the Dirsken Senate Office Building (Room 215) in Washington. The bus holds 40 people and has space for 2 wheelchairs. The bus will leave from our office (629 Amboy Ave. in Edison) at 9:00 AM and arrive in Washington at 11:30 AM. We will arrive back in Edison at 7:00 PM. We will be taking reservations on a first come, first serve basis. Please make signs and bring a bag lunch. We will have water available. For more information on the Graham-Cassidy proposal go to: https://medicaid.publicrep.org/feature/graham-cassidy-bill It is critical that we join the effort to educate our Senators about how this proposal will negatively impact our community. Please RSVP immediately: [email protected] (Luke) or [email protected] (Carole). Please let us know the names of people who are going and their cell phone or home numbers. Can't make to the Washington?
