The Arc’s New Strategic Plan for the Future
What does true inclusion and equity look like for people with
intellectual and developmental disabilities?
As we look to the future of disability rights, The Arc is excited to meet this question head on with our new Strategic Framework for the Future of The Arc. This framework is intended to be a guiding light for our work across the local, state, and national levels. It is the result of an exhaustive, two-year process—culminating in the middle of a global pandemic and human rights reckoning that will shape our advocacy for years to come.
Now more than ever, The Arc must do its part to strategically build the disability rights movement into a more diverse and powerful force for change. We are proud to present our Strategic Framework for the Future of The Arc, which will guide us along this journey.
Strategic Framework for the Future of The Arc
Town Hall: The Arc’s Response to COVID-19 and Plans for the Future
On October 7th, The Arc hosted a Town Hall discussion specifically for self-advocates, family members, caregivers, and service providers. Our Board President, Fred Misilo, a panel of experts, and CEO Peter Berns discussed The Arc’s response to the pandemic, the progress we’ve made, and the threats that remain. We also unveiled the new Strategic Framework for the Future of The Arc.
Letting Data Tell the Story: National Stakeholder Survey Results
How was this new framework created? To gather input, we engaged in a two-year participatory process to seek input from a variety of constituents. To understand how we arrived at our new Strategic Framework for the Future of The Arc, we want to share a summary of the insights gained from our stakeholder survey.
Chapters of The Arc can dig deeper into survey results on the Chapter Portal.
