Why We Exist

We enrich the lives of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, their families, and their communities through advocacy in education, policy, and human rights.



Join our fight for Equal Rights for all

The Arc fights every day to protect civil rights and access to vital programs, such as Medicaid, for those with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD). But we can’t do it alone! We need the help of people with I/DD, their families, and allies of the cause.


Sign up today to receive updates on our movement, take action, and make a difference in the lives of people with disabilities.
