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.
