Thank you, Jonathan.  Can we submit written comments as well?
This is very timely since Mayor Ed Lee will be announcing that the city will
higher 1400 new people this year.

Subject: [Nfbc-info] **FDR Dems Action Alert: hearing On Employment Of
People With Disabilities

Dear Fellow Bay Area Federationists,

Please join the FDR Dems and a broad coalition of people with disabilities
and advocacy organizations on Thursday June 5, as we advocate for employment
access for our community. The San Francisco Board of supervisors
Neighborhood Safety and Services committee will hold a hearing on the
employment of people with disabilities in City service. If you are a person
with a disability who has fought to find employment, an organization
dedicated to equality for our community or are a supporter of people with
disabilities frustrated by the appallingly stagnant unemployment numbers for
people with disabilities please make plans to attend this meeting. We
encourage attendees to give brief (2 minute) testimony, and share your
thoughts and personal story.

The hearing will be held at 10 a.m. on Thursday June 5, at San Francisco
City Hall room 250 (Board of Supervisors Chambers). Please visit our
ployment-hearing-june-5th> for all the details. I encourage you to share
this information widely. It is essential our voices are heard at this
hearing to demonstrate people with disabilities believe in empowerment
through employment.

We also want to thank our supporter, Supervisor Eric Mar, for calling this
hearing and bringing this issue to light.

If you have any questions you may reply directly to this email.

We look forward to seeing you on June 5!

Jonathan Lyens
