Whether you are advocating for yourself or others, advocacy is a powerful way to speak up for those who need support and provide a united voice to propel an issue into the public eye.


At The Arc of DC, we know that parents, relatives, and caregivers of children with disabilities are looking ahead to the child’s future. They find themselves challenged and frustrated by state legislation and federal law that seem not to respect the rights of individuals with developmental disabilities.


The Arc of DC has always been a strong advocate and mentor for people with disabilities and expends a vast amount of energy and resources to ensure that every voice is heard and every need is answered.
