New Brand Identity for The Arc

Visit The Arc's Website
It’s Here! New Brand Identity for The Arc The Arc is proud to unveil an exciting new identity along with renewed energy and dedication to the movement for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. You’ll find a dynamic new logo and look for our publications – a freshly redesigned Empower magazine will be arriving in your mailbox soon! – Website, social media profiles and more with a bold color combination of orange and yellow and a new design for how our name is represented. This logo is one part of a larger brand identity used by us and The Arc’s national office along with other affiliated chapters across the country. We are working hard to make sure this new brand becomes widely recognized and promoted on a national level as well as in communities across the country. Increased prominence will help The Arc grow our recognition legislatively, increase much needed financial support, add newly engaged volunteers and improve the ease with which everyone will be able to identify with our mission to serve people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The new identity was developed over the course of a year with professional brand consultants and a dedicated team of individuals from The Arc nationally who understand our needs and goals. The visual elements of the brand, along with the name “The Arc”, represent the energetic efforts of those of us who promote and protect the civil rights of and provide the services and support needed by people with I/DD and their families across the arc of their lifetimes. This new identity will take us forward and command the kind of respect and recognition on a national basis that our organization deserves. We invite you to contact us to get more information about the new brand, the availability of new logos and artwork for those who work with us and how you can support us into the future. Visit info with your thoughts.

March Is Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month

March Is Our Month! Thanks to the advocacy efforts of The Arc in the 1980s, President Ronald Reagan officially declared March to be Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month in 1987. For nearly a quarter of a century, The Arc and its network of 700+ chapters across the country have fostered respect and access for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (i/DD). We have made tremendous progress in promoting and protecting the rights of people with I/DD and creating opportunities for them to live, learn and work as valued members of their communities. However, it’s time more people became aware of the challenges faced by more than 7 million Americans and their families as they strive to be fully included in society. Join us during March to help raise awareness. Volunteer at a local chapter of The Arc. Donate. Or simply speak up and help enlighten those around you. Find out more about I/DD and what you can do at today. Watch our blog,Facebook page and Twitter profile for messages all month about things you can do as an individual to help raise awareness then spread the word…share and retweet and let’s get everyone talking about I/DD during March.
