Send a Recovery Chamption to Oct. 10 Destination Dignity March!

NYAPRS Note: Hundreds of self-advocates are preparing to come to Washington DC on October 10 to participate in our 2nd Annual Destination Dignity March and Rally (see below for more details).

We will join our voices to call for an America in which every person affected by mental health challenges is valued in their communities and supported with the right kind of help when and where they need it. We will call for a national strategy for social justice and dignity to counter the history of discrimination and stigma.

Please support our cause!

Last year, NYAPRS sent 3 busloads of spirited marchers….this year, we aim to send 4 from LI and NYC. But this year we can’t afford to do this on our own. We’ll need your help!

It costs about $40 to send each New Yorker…e.g. $8,000+ for 4 buses.
