Your Advocacy Can Make a Difference This August!

Each August, members of Congress leave Washington, D.C., and return to their home states. During this time, they meet with constituents in their districts to learn about issues that matter to them.

At town hall meetings, community events, virtual visits, and more, members of The Arc will be advocating for and educating members of Congress about vital programs for people with disabilities. It is important that they also hear from YOU during this time!

To help you advocate during this August recess and year-round, we have created a FREE toolkit. Use it to help educate your elected officials about key services that affect people with disabilities and their families, such as:

  • Increased funding for home and community-based services
  • Better wages for direct care workers
  • Key changes to increase the amount that people who receive Supplemental Security Income can save

The toolkit includes advocacy tips, sample social media posts and graphics, key resources, and more.
