Date:1/22/2009

SEIU and Allies challenge legislators to "Walk a Day" in the shoes of those who see first-hand impact of budget delays and cuts

MEDIA ADVISORY FOR FRIDAY, JANUARY 23rd @ 12 NOON

***FOR PLANNING PURPOSES ONLY ***

SACRAMENTO, Calif., Jan. 22 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- As the state's cash flow crisis threatens to leave hundreds of thousands of Californians in the lurch, hundreds of SEIU members and our allies from across California will descend on the State Capitol Friday, calling urgent attention to the need for real budget solutions that protect Californians. The rally on Friday will be followed by marches on Saturday, January 24th in Sacramento, Fresno and San Francisco.

Friday's event will kick off a full-scale effort by SEIU members and those they serve to break the political log-jam that threatens child care providers, seniors, people with disabilities, college students, and families in crisis.

Beginning February 1, hundreds of thousands of Californians will be devastated by delayed payments, the direct effect of the state's failure to adopt real budget solutions:

  • College students will miss their grants.
  • People with developmental disabilities will see their support systems stressed and endangered.
  • Child care providers will go unpaid and many will go out of business, which will affect thousands of working families.
  • Families stressed by unemployment and the faltering economy will have less support as counties' ability to provide services will be compromised
  • Low-income seniors, the blind, and people with disabilities face an uncertain future in regard to basic necessities.

SEIU members and allies will challenge legislators and the Governor to Walk a Day in their shoes in order to understand the effect of payment delays and budget cuts.

WHAT: Protest on State Capitol Steps

WHO: Caregivers, students, nurses, janitors and other SEIU members

WHEN: Friday, January 23, 12 Noon

WHERE: State Capitol, South Steps, Sacramento, CA
