Happy family at park
Our events bring together advocates, families, chapters, members and professionals in the intellectual and developmental disability community. Resources for the media are available in our newsroom.
Media Matters: Please contact The Arc of Colorado, at (303) 864-9334 or thearcofco@thearcofco.org Name Usage: The Arc of Colorado is correct. The Arc is not an acronym.
• Do not create acronyms from The Arc
• Do not use ARC in all caps in any circumstances
• In writing, use The Arc, not The ARC and not ARC
— Think of The Arc as a title or a phrase; it must be used as a whole
— Always refer to us as “The Arc”; do not say simply “Arc” or “Arc Chapters”
The correct plural use, when referring to more than one chapter is “…chapters of The Arc”; do not say Arcs, or ARCs, or Arc chapters.
If you wish to include The Arc of Colorado’s name and/or logo in a publication, please contact Elizabeth Moran, Executive Director,  emoran@thearcofco.org.
