DRIVING CHANGE AND PROTECTING THE RIGHTS OF INDIVIDUALS WITH DISABILITIES
Share Your Story: What Supports Do You Need to Live in Your Community?
Many people with disabilities rely on Medicaid-funded home and community-based services (HCBS) to live independently in their communities. HCBS supports people with disabilities by paying for things like employment supports, getting around, dressing, bathing or taking medication, and more.
Help advocate for HCBS by sharing YOUR story about the supports you receive to be as independent as possible or the supports you don’t get but need to thrive.

Are you ready to equip yourself with the tools to advocate for disability rights this year? With a new Administration, a new Congress, and renewed calls for equity and progress amidst a continuing pandemic, your advocacy has never been more important. And with sessions available right from the convenience of your computer, it’s never been easier to attend.
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.
