As an affiliate of The Arc United States, The Arc Oregon adopts the position statements as developed and published by our national affiliate.
The Arc’s position statements address critical issues related to human and civil rights, treatment, and services and programs for children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families.
Position statements are used to advance The Arc’s public policy goals, as well as provide a platform for our state and local chapters to gain a national perspective for what The Arc stands for. They also serve to inform our constituency, stakeholders and the general public on the prevailing organizational view on key issues.
