The Going Home Campaign is asking you to make face to face visits with your State Senators and Representatives this summer beginning now.

We recommend small meetings with a parent, a self-advocate and other community advocates to attend the meeting.

The focus of these meetings will be to ask your legislators to “support transitioning people from state institutions to a community of choice and to vote NO for funding state institutions and the Murray Developmental Center.”

The Going Home Campaign has developed the following materials for you to use at these meetings with your legislators:

1.     Legislative Meeting Invite and Talking Points
2.     Frequently Asked Questions
3.     Going Home Fact Sheet
4.     Anti Closure Resolution HR 273
5.     How Your Legislators Voted on Anti Closure Resolution
6.     Report Card on Your Legislative Visit

Please click on to the Report Card above and follow the steps to give us feedback on your legislative visit and where your legislators stand on community services.
