We are committed to helping promote and protect the human rights of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The Arc is on the front-lines in advocacy and along with our state chapter and national organization we are:
- Working to ensure that health care reform legislation helps adults with disabilities get the supports they need to remain independent;
- Expanding the federal hate crimes law to protect people with disabilities; and
- Creating incentives for states to serve people with disabilities in the community, not in costly, segregated institutions.
You will notice some updates here and even more on The Arc of the United States Action Center contains the most current and up-to-date information on national legislation as it relates to disability. Visit the Action Center and make your voice heard.
