DRIVING CHANGE AND PROTECTING THE RIGHTS OF INDIVIDUALS WITH DISABILITIES
Tell the Senate: Pass Historic Investment in Disability Services
The House of Representatives passed the Build Back Better Act—now it’s time for the Senate to act! The bill would improve the quality of life for millions with disabilities and their support networks through expanding access to community-based care, raising direct support worker wages, creating a national paid leave program, and improving and expanding Supplemental Security Income. Contact your Senators TODAY and urge them to pass this critical bill!
Seeking Sessions for the 2022 Summer Leadership Institute
Do you have a great program or idea to share with The Arc’s network? We are looking for inspiring and innovative session topics for this year’s Summer Leadership Institute, taking place July 18–20 in Chicago, Illinois. The deadline to submit your session proposal is February 25.
The Arc fights every day to protect civil rights and access to vital programs, such as Medicaid, for those with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD). But we can’t do it alone! We need the help of people with I/DD, their families, and allies of the cause.
