Disability Justice

Dignity for people in Nursing Homes

Take Action Here.

Long Term Congregate Care institutions (LTC, nursing homes et al.) are mostly

for-profit businesses whose owners maximize (Medicaid-funded) profit by mistreating

residents and exploiting workers. 

Residents and staff in congregate institutions faced bad conditions, poor infection control, and retaliation against whistle-blowers long before the pandemic.  Retaliation for speaking up and organizing, by bosses and facility managers, has long been both illegal and widespread. 

                                                        Hear testimony from former facility residents.

HB3716 (summary here) has broad support from disability, community, labor, and senior groups.


Food & Medicine -- Stop Cuts!

Between ending the COVID 'Public Health Emergency' (PHE) and adding new barriers ('work requirements' do NOT increase employment; they reduce benefits)  millions of eligible persons are losing, or at risk of losing food and medical help.
