Let’s talk about The Arc in The Community!
With over 625 chapters across the country, The Arc’s presence should be prominent in every community we operate in, but that is not often the case. Join members from The Arc’s National board, chapter leaders, staff, parents and advocates to discuss The Arc’s role in the community and the responsibility we have in reaching out to diverse communities. Questions to explore:
• What should our presence be in the community?
• How effective are we in reaching diverse members of the communities we operate in?
• What are strategies we can undertake from a local, state and national level to meet the needs of a diverse I/DD community?
