Advocacy & Public Policy

The Arc Central Chesapeake Region was started as a grassroots organization and we still embrace those values. Our members, self-advocates and supporters all advocate for equal rights and opportunities for those with intellectual and developmental disabilities on city, county, state and federal levels.

Did you know you can advocate and influence policy from your living room? It is as easy as 1, 2, 3!

First, read up on our policy priorities and voice your support or opposition to your legislator. Our state chapter, The Arc Maryland, is a great resource for advocacy and policy news. You can read about current issues that are important to those with I/DD.

Second, stay informed about what is going on with our priority areas by joining our newsletter.

Finally, GET THE WORD OUT! Email your friends, family and colleagues! Share your views on social media! Join our Facebook group! We make it easy for you with our online form.
