Reconnect. Re-Energize.

Every year self-advocates, families, local chapters of The Arc, and professionals come together to learn about current issues impacting individuals with developmental disabilities, and to be inspired to carry out our mission of ensuring all individuals with disabilities live fuller, more inclusive lives.  And this year we are excited to Reconnect in person and to Re-Energize for the fight for A Life Like Yours movement! 

This year's theme, "Reconnect & Re-Energize" recognizes the extended amount of time we have been away from each other and our collective need to connect to gain energy from one another - to connect to be informed - to connect to be inspired. 

We know not everyone can come in person, but the lessons learned from the last 2 years ensures that for those who can't come, you can still connect virtually.  

We want to use this time of Connection to Energize the movement, so together we can all face the challenges ahead to building A Life Like Yours!
