Public Policy Recognition Event
The Arc Minnesota’s Public Policy Recognition event salutes the accomplishments of individuals or groups whose efforts have benefited individuals with disabilities and their families. The event offers an opportunity for members of The Arc Minnesota and others in the community to celebrate each honoree’s public policy achievements and to support the work of The Arc Minnesota.
The Institute on Community Integration
The University of Minnesota’s Institute on Community Integration (ICI) has influenced a wave of social change supporting equality and inclusion for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities for more than 30 years. A federally-funded University Center for Excellence in Developmental Disabilities, ICI is part of a national network of similar programs committed to advancing all aspects of including people with disabilities in their communities. Through collaborative research, training, and information sharing, the Institute improves policies and practices to ensure that all children, youth, and adults with disabilities are valued by, and contribute to, their communities of choice.
