Meet Our Gala Co-Chairs!

The opportunity to chair the 2023 Gala was such an honor. We were thrilled to support The Arc in this way, and as attorneys using our law degrees to fight for people’s rights, the focus of the 2023 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.

Thank you for supporting the 2023 Arc Gala. There is so much more we can accomplish when we come together. Your contributions 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.
