This article found on abc27.com dated May 2, 2012, discusses a rally held by members of the Intellectual Disability Community at the rotunda of the Pennsylvania state capital building.  Hats off to those Senators and Representatives who were encouraging the folks participating in the rally to make themselves heard by Governor Corbett.

To those who are organizing and participating in the rallies against Gov. Corbett’s proposed 20% cut to mental health and intellectual disability services I tip my hat to all of you, you’re doing what I can only dream of doing.
