From all of us at The Arc, we want to thank you for giving the gift of empowerment this year.

When it seemed that we were up against the insurmountable, it was because of you and your support, that we were able to band together to promote and protect the human rights of so many individuals within our community. Without you, dear friend, our good work would not be possible.

This year, your support alongside a nation full of advocates will continue to advance the full inclusion of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

You are The Arc. The Arc is Empowerment.
