How You Can Help

Join the Fight for Equal Rights for All

The Arc fights every day to protect civil rights and access to vital programs, such as Medicaid, for those with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). But we can’t do it alone! We need the help of people with IDD, their families, and allies of the cause.
