White House to Host The ARC as part of the Community Leaders Briefing Series
WASHINGTON, DC – Tomorrow, February 10th, the White House Office of Public Engagement will host 150 of The ARC’s leaders, members, advocates, and staff from across the country as part of the White House Community Leaders Briefing Series. The ARC is one of the largest national community-based organizations advocating for and serving people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families.
The White House Community Leaders Briefing Series, a weekly program that began in the summer of 2011, is a unique opportunity for grassroots leaders to start a two-way dialogue with the White House about issues that are affecting their communities and to ensure that they are well-informed about government policies and programs and how they can use or maximize these resources.
