We work with staff and volunteers from regional offices throughout Minnesota and with The Arc of the United States to help ensure that the issues and interests of people with disabilities, their families, and staff are heard and represented within the Minnesota State Capitol and in Washington, D.C.
In addition to nonpartisan public policy, we work to promote and protect the human rights of people with disabilities through systems advocacy, training and education, and community engagement.
