The Equality Taskforce is a group of community partners working to raise awareness about disability and aging in Grays Harbor County in order to create equitable access and inclusion for all, provide information and education about resources, and promote community collaboration and networking.
The Arc was built as a grassroots organization around kitchen tables, as individuals with disabilities and their families organized and fought for their rights and full inclusion in the community. Today, advocates across the country continue to advocate and share stories about what it means to live every day with a disability and what is possible with proper supports and services. Their stories and activism transform legislation and numbers into real-life impact. Through them, the mission of The Arc comes to life and demonstrates the importance of building a future that includes us all.
A major purpose of The Arc is advocacy. Your membership with The Arc strengthens the voice used to advocate for services and funding to fulfill the needs of people with I/DD and their families. It shows that YOU care and think people with special needs are important and need to be heard.Become a Member
