We Cannot Rest, Friend
People with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) and autism, their families, and the direct support workforce have been challenged more than ever before by the COVID-19 pandemic. As we prepare for colder weather and COVID’s likely resurgence, we know that this is not the end of the health, social, or fiscal crises. A state budget deficit is looming and will require more vigilance not less, stronger advocacy not rest.
While we don’t know what’s ahead, The Arc will continue to fight for people with I/DD and autism with your help. They are counting on us. Your gift today will make advocacy for our community and The Arc’s continued efforts to help families navigate the pandemic possible. Please join us as we chart a path forward in a world that has been radically changed by this pandemic.
