California Needs a Family Recovery Budget

By Leticia Alejandrez
California Family Resource Association

This month, I spoke up for the California Dream.  The organization I lead, the California Family Resource Association, joined nearly 120 statewide and local organizations in calling for a Family Recovery Budget to help all families, our economy, and State get back on track after this great recession.  We all oppose the Governor’s devastating May Revise budget, which includes only cuts to the very jobs and investments that built California families and communities, while simultaneously failing to provide a balanced, common-sense solution to the state’s multi-billion dollar budget woes.
