Individuals with Disabilities Will Speak Out to Members of the State Legislator in Panel Discussion

DATE: April 13, 2011

FROM: Melanie Jones, Sertoma Centre


RE: Alert Notice - Media Conference

Individuals with Disabilities Will Speak Out to Members of the State Legislator in Panel Discussion

As a member of the media, you are invited to attend a 30 minute panel discussion to be held on Tuesday, April 19th at 10 a.m. at Sertoma Centre’s facility at 4100 West 127th Street, in Alsip, IL. Sertoma Centre has invited all state legislators who represent the areas of the city and south/southwest suburbs to participate in a panel discussion with the Self Advocacy Committee members. The Self Advocates who represent individuals with disabilities have planned a series of questions and comments related to their programs at Sertoma Centre and the role that the legislators have in keeping these programs in place.

Recently, two of the newest State Representatives Bill Cunningham and Kelly Burke paid a visit to Sertoma Centre. They each spent time with the individuals with disabilities that participate in the Self Advocacy group, where they had an opportunity to speak directly with the representatives and ask many poignant questions.

It is imperative to show the community how important being heard is to individuals with disabilities. We encourage you to speak with the Self Advocates immediately following the presentation.

Please RSVP to Melanie Jones, Director of Advancement/Communications if you would like to attend. Call 708-730-6206 or email Jones at mjones@sertomacentre.org

Link to Article Featured in April 20th Southtown Star Newspaper

On Tuesday, April 19th, 2011, 19 members of Sertoma Centre’s Self Advocacy program “Sertoma United” and participants in the Mental Health Program gathered to meet with members of the Illinois state legislature who were invited to attend a panel discussion on proposed cuts to services. They came prepared with a series of questions and comments related to their programs at Sertoma Centre and the role that the Illinois State legislators have in keeping these programs in place. Representative Thaddeus Jones and a representative from Kelly Burke’s office attended the conference and heard firsthand how important Sertoma Centre programs and services are in their lives. Representative Jones said that he would bring the message of the good work Sertoma Centre is doing to the Appropriations Committee in Springfield. “Everyone is part of our community. So it’s important that we address these concerns and make sure their voices are heard,” Jones stated to the media.

I intended to post you a bit of observation so as to thank you so much as before regarding the magnificent pointers you’ve provided here. It’s strangely open-handed with you to offer freely exactly what a few people would have distributed as an e book in order to make some dough for themselves, primarily considering the fact that you might well have tried it in case you decided. Those smart ideas in addition acted like a easy way to fully grasp that other people have the identical eagerness just like my personal own to grasp more in terms of this problem. I think there are lots of more pleasurable times ahead for individuals who looked over your website.

would like to show my appreciation to the writer for rescuing me from this type of situation. After looking through the the net and seeing methods which were not pleasant, I figured my life was over. Living minus the answers to the problems you’ve sorted out by way of your entire short article is a crucial case, and those that might have adversely affected my entire career if I hadn’t come across your web site. Your actual capability and kindness in maneuvering all the pieces was vital. I don’t know what I would have done if I had not come upon such a stuff like this. I can at this time look ahead to my future. Thanks for your time very much for this high quality and results-oriented guide. I won’t hesitate to refer your site to anyone who requires counselling about this issue.

My wife and i ended up being so fortunate that Jordan managed to deal with his inquiry out of the precious recommendations he was given out of the blog. It’s not at all simplistic just to find yourself giving away tactics which often a number of people have been trying to sell. And we realize we’ve got the writer to be grateful to because of that. All of the explanations you made, the easy website menu, the friendships your site help engender – it’s got most fabulous, and it’s really aiding our son in addition to the family understand the topic is enjoyable, and that’s really pressing. Thank you for the whole lot!

I am grateful for this help and in addition trust you are aware of a powerful job you happen to be accomplishing training most people through the use of a site.
