Tell the 117th Congress: Include Disability Community in COVID-19 Relief Bills!
Congress once again passed coronavirus pandemic relief legislation that left out people with disabilities and those who support them! The critical needs of people with disabilities, their families, and the direct support professional (DSP) workforce must be included in the first coronavirus relief bill of the new Congress – we cannot be left behind.

Meet The Arc’s Advocates
Sharing personal stories about the real-life impact of public policy is one of the most powerful tools we have – they educate, motivate, and empower.
Meet advocates who have shared their stories about the role of vital programs like Medicaid, Supplemental Security Income, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, and more.
Engage With Your Elected Officials
Sharing your point of view with your Members of Congress is an important part of our democracy. It’s their job to represent you and they want to hear from you! There are important issues at stake.
Your Members of Congress need to hear directly from their constituents on how programs and laws make a difference – and that they should be preserved, not cut.
