Share this page

Adhering to a long-standing biennial tradition, ANCOR joined AAIDD, ASA, ASAN, Easterseals, NACDD, TASH, The Arc of the United States and United Cerebral Palsy in laying out broader disability policy priorities for the 117th Congress. As explained in this joint policy priorities booklet:

“The Arc, AAIDD, ANCOR, ASA, ASAN, Easterseals, NACDD, TASH, and UCP base their public policy views on the understanding that our constituents are full participants in our democratic society. We work to shape a federal/state partnership that provides benefits, supports, and services for our shared constituency. All people with disabilities have the right to advocate for themselves at all levels of government.

While all nine organizations support these policy goals, each organization may choose to emphasize and prioritize work on goals specifically related to the nature of the individual organization and its respective constituents.”
