The 2023 Arc Gala


Join us on March 4, 2023 at The Depot in Minneapolis for a night to celebrate and champion public policy. The 2023 Gala will center on our public policy programming, with the goal of broadening our reach and strengthening our impact in legislative and grassroots advocacy. Public policy is one of our core programming pillars but it is one of our most under-resourced programs. By supporting The Arc Minnesota, you’re supporting justice for all.

Meet Our Gala Co-Chairs!

The opportunity to chair the 2023 Gala is such an honor. We are thrilled to support The Arc in this way, and as attorneys using our law degrees to fight for people’s rights, the focus of this year’s Fund a Need is particularly close to our hearts. The Arc’s public policy work not only brings about concrete changes that transform systems to better meet the needs of our community, but also does so in a way that centers the experiences and follows the lead of people who have disabilities—pushing advocacy partners and agencies to do the same.

Please join us in supporting the 2023 Arc Gala. There is so much more we can accomplish when we come together. Your contribution will support The Arc Minnesota’s transformational policy change, co-created alongside disabled leaders—and ultimately, a more welcoming world for us all.

Thank you for joining us on March 4, 2023.

Maren Hulden and John Albanese
