IT'S TIME CALIFORNIA!

Determined for Change

 Do not miss this!

The advocacy groups across the state and key experts in California have joined together to form FASD Now!, A California Alliance.  The focus of this group is collaborative in nature, targeting the landscape of FASD in California with the goal of awareness, diagnosis and services.  The Legislative Task Force is a key step for creating change.  

 

On June 24, the U.S. Senate and House introduced matching bi-partisan bills to authorize comprehensive FASD support services, public health prevention, and research programs across agencies within the U.S. Departments of Health and Human Services, Education, and Justice. The Advancing FASD Research, Services, and Prevention Act, (S. 2238, H.R. 4151), known as the FASD ReSPect Act, is cosponsored by Senators Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) and Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) and Representatives Betty McCollum (D-MN) and Don Young (R-AK). If passed, this bill will provide federal funds to the states that have existing FASD Task Forces or advisory councils.

Professionals

 

We need signatures supporting the creation of a legislative task force from professionals such as doctors, mental health providers, social workers, criminal justice professionals, and educators. The legislature must recognize that FASD is a critical issue to California and that there is support for such a task force.

Work with people with FASD in any of these fields?
