What: Rally to protest the closing of Bernard Fineson DDSO – one of only three DDSO facilities left in NYS.

Join local elected officials including NYS Senator Tony Avella.

New York State wants to shut down Bernard Fineson DDSO, 80-45 Winchester Blvd, leaving all of NYC and downstate without a facility for individuals with developmental disabilities.

What does that mean for you?

• Vacant buildings, a loss of jobs and business in the local community, and individuals with special needs across NYC and downstate redirected to jails or hospitals, drugged or restrained before a more than 200 mile journey upstate!

• Take a stand to keep your community and NYC strong and compassionate!

• Rally on 10/20 from 12-1 pm at the vehicular entrance to Bernard Fineson on Hillside Ave., across from the Padavan-Preller fields.
