Help Make Sure Congress Knows Why People with disabilities are #WeAreEssential!

Help Make Sure Congress Knows Why #WeAreEssential!

The Arc is fighting every day to make sure the critical needs of people with disabilities, their families, and the direct support professional (DSP) workforce are included in the next coronavirus relief bill – and we need your help!


The U.S. House of Representatives has passed legislation that includes many of our top asks – and now the Senate must act! From home and community-based services to minimize the risk of people with disabilities being forced into institutions, paid leave for all caregivers, personal protective equipment for the vital DSP workforce, and stimulus payments for all – our essential needs must be included!


Share your story with us and send a personalized message to your Members of Congress by answering 3 short questions!


Thank you for continuing to fight with us and for reminding your legislators that they must recognize the value of the lives of people with disabilities!
