Over the past 60 years The Arc has been the leading statewide and national movement advocating for the human rights, appropriate supports and community inclusion of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. All Aboard The Arc is a vehicle for individuals, families, friends and community members to unite in one voice as we rally and raise awareness of the past, present, and future of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
All of us do not have equal talent,
but all of us should have an equal opportunity to develop our talents.
– John F. Kennedy
Every year in March we welcome you to join us at the State House in Boston to advocate for appropriate funding and services for all adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities in our state. To get more involved in local legislative advocacy and to attend the annual Legislative Reception please contact Abigail Eaves.
Please help secure that Arcs will continue to exist in future generations and consider a DONATION today.
We are the largest national community-based organization advocating for and serving people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families. We encompass all ages and all spectrums from autism, Down syndrome, Fragile X and various other developmental disabilities.
