The Arc promotes and protects the human rights of people with disabilities and actively supports their full inclusion and participation in the community throughout their lifetimes.

Disability is the only minority group that any of us can join at any time. It knows no boundaries, it does not discriminate by age, race, or sex and it can strike in a moment.
