Lanterman Coalition 10 Campaign

Consisting of the 19 statewide organizations that make up the California Developmental Services system, the Lanterman Coalition continues to urge the Brown administration to fund the promise of the Lanterman Act. While cost of living, minimum wage increases, and health, transportation, and benefits costs are typically built into state agencies, the Department of Developmental Services (DDS) system serving the needs of our state’s most vulnerable populations does not have these accepted adjustments. As a result, the system has been seriously hindered and has failed to meet the Lanterman promise.  Learn more about the Lanterman Coalition 10 Campaign here.
