The Arc of Colorado has a longstanding reputation at both the state and national level for championing important legislation that impacts people with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities. We recognize that change must happen systematically in order to impact individual lives for the better. We work, during the legislative session, and outside of session to influence public policy to better lives of the individuals we serve. Our legislative efforts coincide with the efforts of The Arc of the United States. Our Policy Agenda is crafted in part, with input from our chapters around the state and their members.
