The Root of All Our Work
The Arc of NC
Advocacy is the root of all our work at The Arc of NC. It is how we began, and though the world looks very different now, there is advocacy in all we do each day; there is also so much work left to be done.
Besides being able to connect directly with families who need us to lend our voice so that theirs becomes stronger, we also work at the state and federal levels to advocate for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) and their families. We focus on policy issues that are important to the IDD community such as healthcare, education, housing, employment, accessibility, and community inclusion.
