Many Californians are enjoying prosperous times, but1.3 million older adults & people with disabilities are worse off than ever.
Californians for SSI
it's time to take action
I don’t feel like the world or society has been fair to me at all. I worked hard for years. I did what I was supposed to do. Yet every day is hell for me. I’m scared to death.
They give you enough so you can stay alive, but still struggle and be in pain. It’s not enough to have any quality of life.
If we didn’t have extra help from the Food Bank we would starve. Not to mention soap, toothpaste, toilet paper — stuff you need to survive. I’m just a paycheck away from being homeless.
The worst thing about SSI cuts is that it’s prevented me from being able to build equity and move out of poverty. I haven’t been able to save any money.
