Welcome to our New Blog

Blog Welcome imageYou might have noticed something new on our website in the past few days. The Arc has a new blog!

We linked to a few posts in the latest issue of Fusion, our e-newsletter for chapters. However, if you’re just stumbling across it, we wanted to welcome you.

This is the official blog of The Arc. In this space, we’ll aim to accomplish three things:

  • To provide real-time information on the issues surrounding people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and other topics The Arc cares about.
  • To create a starting place for discussion (both online and offline) centered around the issues that the intellectual and developmental disability community want to talk about.
  • To give you all the information you need to help promote and protect the human rights of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and actively support their full inclusion and participation in the community throughout their lifetimes.

We want to make this spot on the web the most useful for you: our chapters, advocates, people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and other folks interested in The Arc and our mission. So don’t hesitate to participate in the conversation. We welcome it, and encourage you to read our online community guidelines before posting any comments.

If you have any ideas or more lengthy comments for the blog, please drop a note to David Kennedy at kennedy@thearc.org, or call (202) 534-3709.

Again, welcome, and thanks for reading!
