Rise Up Together
On November 9, S:US Direct Support Professionals and the people they support attended the NYC rally in Lower Manhattan to demand higher wages and investment in the Direct Support Professional (DSP) workforce.
DSPs support people with disabilities with essential daily functions, medication administration, nutrition recommendations, domestic chores, understanding COVID-19 safety, and keeping their spirits up with fun activities. They also help people learn how to do things for themselves. It is because of their care and compassion that those who receive our services continue to have enriching and rewarding lives.
We urge you to support this important cause by submitting your personal stories and connecting with Governor Hochul and your local officials to advocate for the care of people with disabilities.
