Advocacy Made Easy: State & Local Chapters Working Together

The Arc of Indiana’s legislative agenda at the state level has made a positive difference for people with IDD. Recently, The Arc took a leadership role in getting a 14% Medicaid waiver increase in Indiana’s biennial budget. This will raise DSP wages to an average of $15.00 per hour statewide. Stone Belt Arc has worked with The Arc of Indiana to successfully engage and educate legislators at the local levels. The Arc’s agenda is strengthened by partnerships with the local affiliates. Join us to learn practical tips and tools to take your advocacy efforts to the next level. Local executives will get ideas on events, outreach, and communication to use in their community. State executives will learn how The Arc of Indiana uses the power of the local advocates to affect change in the state legislature.
