Statement from Peter Berns, CEO, The Arc of the United States:
The election is over and the political landscape has changed, as it has many times in the course of history. One thing that has not changed is The Arc’s passion to promote and protect the human rights of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and to actively support their inclusion in the community across their lifetimes. So let’s pause today and, after reflecting on the results of the election, reaffirm our mission and our commitment to achieving justice, equality and fairness for people with I/DD and their families. Let’s redouble our efforts with creativity, vigor and integrity as we continue on this journey together.
