Did you know that The Arc lead the way in the development of the now well-known Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and other bills protecting the rights of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.  As we have in the past, we continue to advocate in areas such as fair housing, transportation, education and employment. We invite you to learn more about these issues, what is currently going on in the public arena and what The Arc is doing now to preserve and expand civil rights protections for people with disabilities.
