"the five" I believe are the governor and the 4 appropriations committee chairs (house and senate), but would want Lou to confirm that :)

we have to keep our voices loud and let the communities that we advocate for know that they have a voice as well

the pathways to obtain services need to be streamlined as well

How can we push for the state to stream line access to services?
Molly Trueblood
01:07:31
United Way statewide is advocating for an improved technology service to manage 211 services. It would be really transformative but I think is deemed possibly too expensive

Question, With March being “Reading Awareness Month” and over 40% of Metro-Detroiters are functionally illiterate, what are the guest organizations doing to increase an understanding of the information shared from their organizations?
