We’re Building a Community of Champions
The Community of Champions is a grassroots effort to coordinate people around Arkansas to work together with parent-advocates and self-advocates to ensure that the needs and issues of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) are supported.
Take Our Pledge
I pledge to join the Community and become a Champion for Arkansans with intellectual and developmental disabilities by advocating for the issues that affect their ability to live, work and be included in day-to-day activities in the community. As a Champion, I will work with the Community of Champions while individually advocating for the needs of the disabled as a future voter, through social media and as a leader among my peers.
Join the Community & Become a Champion
The Community of Champions is an advocacy group joining with Arkansas’ self advocates and parent advocates to ensure the rights of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities are respected and protected.
Advocates are VITAL: Vote. Include. Talk. Advocate. Language.
