The Arc works to promote and protect hard-won civil rights protections. We pull up a seat at the table at every opportunity where implementation or enforcement of civil rights laws comes under attack, revision, or improvement.
Our Policy Goals
The Arc’s Public Policy Goals outline recommendations on promoting and protecting the civil rights of people with IDD, and our commitment to rights is core to every topic we advocate on at the federal level.
Our Coalition Work
The CCD Rights Task Force advocates on a wide variety of matters involving the civil rights of individuals with disabilities.
