An Action Alert notifies subscribers of critical legislation or government action generally five or six times a year that impact Pennsylvanians with disabilities. The Arc of PA issues Action Alerts to gain grassroots support from our subscribers. Subscribing to receive Action Alerts will assure your knowledge of timely disability-related issues while automatically identifying your legislator and allowing you to call or conveniently send an email. For example, we were able to notify thousands that our state legislature was considering charging monthly premiums for children with disabilities “loophole/PH 95” receiving medical assistance services.
By providing some basic contact information NDSC will send you action alerts whenever policy issues arise in our community. Our policy team will provide you with background on the issue and how it will affect people with Down syndrome and other disabilities. You will receive a targeted email that allows you to easily contact your legislators. Helping us make policy change only takes a moment!
