Succeeding in Challenging Times: Summer Leadership Institute
Due to COVID-19, this year’s in-person Summer Leadership Institute will be a virtual program. The online program will consist of a series of FREE live streaming events and on-demand webinars from July 14 through August 18 covering the financial challenges of COVID-19, providing direct services, navigating policy to advocate for and with people with I/DD, and more.
The 2020 election is only months away. Elections can decide how critical programs for people with disabilities and families work—make sure your vote counts! Our new, free resources include information on why it is important to vote, how to vote, and what to do if your voting rights are violated, plus fact sheets on important issues and sample questions for candidates. All materials are in plain language and available in Spanish, PDF, and Word versions.
Los recursos están en lenguaje simple, disponible en español y ingles, y versiones de PDF y Word.
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.
