RSVP for a Tour Date

About the Event
We're visiting local chapters throughout the summer and we want to see you!

We’re hittin’ the road for our biennial Tour Across Texas (#TheArcTourAcrossTX)! That means our leadership and Public Policy & Advocacy Team are visiting chapters of The Arc of Texas in all corners of the state and singing Willie Nelson’s “On the Road Again” on repeat.

We can’t wait to see you! Folks involved with local chapters are encouraged to attend, as well as members of the broader disability community. As we Tour Across Texas, we hope to meet and reconnect with self-advocates, parents and family members of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD), and staff of disability organizations. If you plan to attend, please RSVP.

Taking place June through September, these visits offer a chance to:

> Learn about The Arc of Texas’ public policy pillars.
> Get tips on how to advocate for public policies that support people with IDD.
> Connect with members of the disability community in your region.

When the 89th Texas Legislative Session begins in January 2025, we must use our collective power to educate and encourage legislators to make policies that help (not hurt) Texans with IDD. We’ve made huge progress together over the years, but there’s still a lot to tackle to ensure friends and family with IDD have the resources needed to live the life they deserve and choose. Let’s get re-energized and prepared to keep going, together!
