On April 25th The Arc Alliance met with various Legislative represenatives and their aids in Washington DC as part of the 2012 Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Hill Day coordinated by The Arc US.
This was a great opportunity for The Arc Alliance to meet and discuss the issues faced by families and individuals with special needs. We met with represenatives in both the senate and congress.
It is clear that many legislators support the issues we face but your invlovment, as someone who elects these officials, is critical it making sure these issues stay in the forfront.
You can get involved by emailing or writting the officials in your district. The following link will help you identify and contact those legislators that represent you and your family.
