What: We want to stop Discrimination practices against black & Latinx persons with Developmental Disabilities!

-DDS lack of oversight & transparency relates to Developmentally Disabled persons not being offered vital services to enhance quality of life

-Unfair Business Practices: Black service providers routinely not paid on time for service already rendered

-Retaliatory practices against disabled persons/families/service providers

-Black service providers paid different rates than their white counterparts providing the same service

-The Lanterman Act Disabilities Act Law is not being followed and adhered to

Why:
-DDS funds all 21 Regional Centers in the State of California. They are not providing oversight and ensuring equity in services to Black & Latinx Developmentally Disabled Persons
-Mistreatment of Black & Latinx clients, families, & service providers
-We want to bring public awareness to the long history of discrimination and disparities of services against BIPOC disabled persons
-We are calling for Nancy Bargmann, DDS Director to resign due to lack of leadership
