TELLING OUR STORY

PAR is advocating to the administration and legislature to hear the voice of families and individuals with Intellectual Disability or Autism. PAR asked individuals who receive ID/A services and their family members to record short videos to advocate to Governor Wolf and legislators about why it is critical to fund these services to keep them afloat during the COVID-19-pandemic. Please watch the videos below from Pennsylvanians advocating for these services and for the Direct Support Professionals who provide them!


Please watch & share this compilation of the videos received by PAR (as of 5/20/20) with a message to Governor Wolf and our legislators from individuals and family members.
