“The arc of history bends toward justice,” said Martin Luther King.
But for members of The Arc, a leading advocacy organization for people with intellectual disabilities – it bends very slowly, especially in states like Virginia, with long, entrenched histories of segregating people in institutional facilities – at no small cost to taxpayers.
Help support change! Go to The Arc of Virginia’s website (www.thearcofva.org) and learn about findings made by the Department of Justice this year after a two year investigation of Virginia’s training centers.
Opportunities are emerging!
Sample advocacy letters coming, HERE, once the Governor’s budget is unveiled and terms for immediate advocacy more clearly defined. Your voice makes a difference!!! THANKS!
