Advocacy

The Arc of North Carolina advocates for public policy that supports people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) and their families. The Arc shares information with the membership and others across the state about policy.

The Arc of North Carolina takes positions and offers recommendations on policy and disability system design .  The Arc is advocating for a service system that responds to the unique needs of people with developmental disabilities that is fiscally responsive, efficient and accountable.

The Arc issues calls to action through our Action Center. It is critical that legislators and policy makers hear directly from the people who will be affected by their decisions. When an issue important to the I/DD community arises we send subscribers an Action Alert.  We’ll explain the issue, offer talking points, and tell you who you can contact so that your voice is heard.

The Arc’s Policy Partner’s E-newsletter is issued very other week during the legislative session. Policy Partners gives readers more in-depth information about pending legislative and policy matters.
