Grassroots Advocacy

The major focus of our work is advocating for public policies that remove barriers and create opportunities for meaningful lives in the community. But who's got the time to keep up with it all? We do. The Arc’s public policy staff are actively involved in federal legislation and regulations to make sure that policy makers understand how people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, their families, caregivers, and service providers will be impacted. And we share this information with you to help make you a more effective advocate.
