The Arc Achievers is the name of our chapter’s self-advocacy group, and the name certainly fits!  The group meets on the third Tuesday of every month at 10:00 am. During the meetings (which are currently being held virtually) members discuss topics that are important to the them, including how to advocate for themselves and others. In March, they launched their “See me. See us.” campaign with the goal of making our community more inclusive, accepting, and respectful. Learn and watch more here.
