The Arc’s 2021 National Convention
September 27, 2021 - September 29, 2021
The Arc’s National Convention is an unmatched opportunity to connect and learn with advocates, professionals, people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, and their families. If you are interested in employment, education, advocacy, housing, criminal justice, and more – our sessions are sure to challenge, inspire, and motivate!
We know the last year and a half has been full of uncertainty and disruption. Our 2021 National Convention will both honor the struggles of the past year and renew our hope as we look to the future of the disability rights movement. Sessions will detail the challenges and advances made in the past year, including sessions on strategic crisis response, remote supports, diversity and inclusion, mental health struggles, and much more!
The in-person event—following the safety guidelines set by the city, state, and CDC—will feature dozens of speakers from across the disability sector, including family members and advocates, policy experts, and innovators at the forefront of disability services and supports.
We hope to see you at this exciting event. Let’s get inspired and prepared for the work ahead!
