On Wednesday, March 6, The Arc of Massachusetts and the Massachusetts Developmental Disabilities Council (MDDC) hosted our 41st Annual Legislative Reception at the Massachusetts State House. This year’s theme, in keeping with The Arc’s ongoing Workforce Initiative, was Building a Stronger Future: Valuing Our Workforce.
Thank you to our sponsors in the Senate and the House for championing The Arc’s priority legislation. Currently we are working to obtain as many cosponsors as possible. Our bill platform, featured below, includes a broad scope of legislation which addresses critical needs of our community including health care, safety, education, housing, and the workforce.
