Advocacy

The Arc of Illinois’ coalition of people with disabilities, families and community organizations advocate each year at the state level to increase investment in community living options and transform the services and supports system. We need every person’s voice to make real change in Illinois. Each year the Arc asks stakeholders to participate in a public policy agenda setting process. Arc leaders participate in legislative meetings, testify at hearings, submit testimony and rally in Springfield. Join us today!
