Arc Connecticut advocacy programs support, promote and protect the civil and human rights of people with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities in Connecticut and we work with The Arc of the United States to approach federal public policy with a values based voice to affect system change. 

Without strong advocacy at all levels, people with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities may not have access to needed supports as well as opportunities to exercise inherent civil and human rights. Additionally, strong advocacy may be required to prevent and/or address abuse, neglect and exploitation that people with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities may experience.

The Arc Connecticut offers a family education workshop series called "Navigate to Advocate." All workshops in this series are geared towards giving families the information they need to advocate they their loved ones with intellectual and developmental disabilities.  Workshops include "After the Cap & Gown: How to Plan for the Future for adult Child with Intellectual & Developmental Disabilities" and "Changing Expectations: Housing & Employment Alternative for People with I/DD."
