RCAL Advocates in Albany

RCAL staff participated in a successful advocacy day on February 25, sponsored by the New York Association on Independent Living at the state Capitol in Albany. Together, with over 200 advocates from around the state, we met with local legislators to push for increased funding for Independent Living Centers, key budget priorities and legislative items including protecting the rights of dual eligible New Yorkers (covered by both Medicare and Medicaid) who will be enrolled in mandatory managed long-term care.

If you would like more details on the day’s priorities, feel free to contact RCAL’s systems advocate Keith Gurgui via e-mail at kgurgui@rcal.org.
