Legislative Action Alerts!
The Arc of Cumberland & Perry Counties regularly advocates for or against legislation that affects children and adults who have disabilities. Often, we join with other Local and State agencies to bring a particular issue to the forefront. Many times, it is critical that a timely response be made to a proposed piece of legislation and/or legislators need to hear from large numbers in order to affect change.
To improve our effectiveness in "getting the word out", we have developed an email list that will allow us to quickly send out important information about issues impacting people who have disabilities. Not all of the alerts will be of interest to you; we understand that. However, we are not able to develop multiple lists specific to particular interests and keep them current. It is our hope that, through the development of a more streamlined system of communication, we will be able to both inform a larger number of the need to take a particular action and in turn, have a much larger response to legislators. By subscribing to our list above, you are allowing us to send you an email alert. We ask that once you receive this alert, you respond by emailing, calling, or writing your legislator.
Occasionally, the emails may contain a list of others to contact. Pertinent information such as addresses, email addresses, etc. are included. All names and email addresses will be solely passed on to the Legislative Action Alerts Email List, and will not be sold or given out for any other use.
To be removed from this list, please click and type "REMOVE" in the body of the email.
