RCPA Organizes Capitol Day in 2024 to Advocate for Health and Human Services

Today, RCPA hosted our 2024 Capitol Day at the Main Rotunda on March 19. The focus of the rally was on workforce issues in health and human services, as well as budget items outlined in Shapiro’s 2024/25 budget. Our 2024 legislative and administrative priorities can be viewed on our website.

RCPA President and CEO Richard Edley spoke to the crowd, emphasizing the need for funding, training, and support for individuals working in various sectors of health and human services. Other organizations also attended to show their support and advocate for themselves, their families, and loved ones. Sherri Landis, Executive Director of The Arc of PA, addressed the audience, while RCPA member Step by Step, Inc. stood in solidarity dressed in orange.

Legislators, including Representative Stephen Kinsey, Representative Doyle Heffley, Representative Dan Miller, Representative Frank Farry, and Senator Art Haywood, shared their perspectives on the ongoing challenges in health and human services. Representative Kinsey and Representative Heffley, Co-Chairs of the House Human Services Committee, expressed their support for the cause.

RCPA extends gratitude to all who attended, from legislators and their staff to advocates representing their communities. Your dedication and commitment to the work you do in our communities do not go unnoticed. We will continue to advocate on your behalf and work towards a more supportive and inclusive future.
