Rally for Tony Otto
Date(s) - 05/08/2019
4:30 pm - 5:30 pm
PEF Members! The rights of developmentally disabled individuals in New York state are being ignored by OPWDD. OPWDD has been closing 24-hour nursing support residences, intensive Intermediate Care Facilities and diminishing the services necessary for people to live in the least restrictive setting by outsourcing these individuals to nursing homes and other long-term care facilities.
PEF family has been told by OPWDD that they must choose a nursing home for their son, Tony Otto, as OPWDD “can no longer support their son’s nursing needs”.
Tony Otto and his family need your help and support!
Help us tell OPWDD to stop cutting vital services to our communities most vulnerable citizens and keep Tony in his home.
We will rally with Tony’s family and local elected officials to raise community awareness the day before his hearing is scheduled. Please join us to amplify our message.
Please RSVP below so we can bring enough material and signs for everyone. If you haven’t yet please sign our petition that we will present to our state representatives and OPWDD leaders: http://bit.ly/opwddpefpetition
