The Dignity Fund measure – Prop I – laid a foundation for more dependable funding and planning, but it is just that, the foundation. Now we must build support for a budget that more equitably addresses the needs and aspiration of old San Franciscans and those with disabilities. This year’s May 16th Budget Rally was part of the building blocks for the future. The Rally, co-sponsored by Senior & Disability Action (SDA), the Coalition of Agencies Serving the Elderly (CASE) and the Community Alliance of Disability Advocates (CADA), were joined by representatives of a number of organizations and neighborhood groups to highlight this year’s priorities.
Thanks to Supervisors Norman Yee, Hillary Ronen, Jeff Sheehy, and representative for Sandra Fewer for coming and showing their interest and support!

Remember, the big annual budget hearing at City Hall is June 19, starting at 9:00 a.m. and running until all have spoken.
