The Arc’s Advocacy Partnership Project, host events every Wednesday to ensure the I/DD community can participate in the legislative process during the legislative session. There are different themes each week to focus on specific priorities.
These events called "Advocacy Days" provide a space for people born with I/DD, their families, and allies from across the state to come together in unity. During these events there are opportunities to learn about the legislative process, develop leadership skills, hear about bills and issues that effect this community and meet with legislators.
This year all Advocacy Days will be held virtually by Zoom. To See More Info or view previous advocacy days from the 2021 session CLICK HERE!
