The Arc Advocacy


Information for Advocates

Do you know someone with an intellectual or developmental disability? They may be your friend, neighbor, schoolmate, co-worker or someone else who is an important part of your life. Have you wondered what you can do to help them lead lives of full participation and inclusion? The Arc can help you get involved.

The Arc is an advocate for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD). We preserve and protect their fundamental rights through advocacy and action in support of legislation for civil rights, employment, housing and supports. We connect people with disabilities, their families, professionals and other supportive individuals to create hope, growth and change.  This is your chance to join a powerful team, not only for the person you may know, but for the millions of people living with I/DD. We invite you to make a difference with a clear, strong, collective voice.
