The focus of the 2021 Arc Gala was making organizational changes that honor the rich lived experience of our communities and are designed to respectfully support people of all backgrounds. The Arc Minnesota is working toward a future where people with intellectual and developmental disabilities live a life they choose with hope, confidence, and belonging.
