People First: The Arc believes that all people with intellectual and developmental disabilities are defined by their own strengths, abilities and inherent value, not by their disability.
Community: The Arc believes that people with intellectual and developmental disabilities belong in the community and have fundamental moral, civil and constitutional rights to be fully included and actively participate in all aspects of society.
Equity: The Arc believes that people with intellectual and developmental disabilities are entitled to the respect, dignity, equality, safety, and security accorded to other members of society, and are equal before the law.
Diversity: The Arc believes that society benefits when people with diverse abilities and cultural backgrounds work together for positive change. We respect our beneficiaries, our donors, our staff, and other implementing agencies as partners. We embrace diversity among our staff, our partners and the communities where we work, without discrimination, regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, religion, age, disability or political affiliation.
Self Determination: The Arc believes in self-determination and self-advocacy. People with intellectual and developmental disabilities, with appropriate resources and supports, can make decisions about their own lives and must be heard on issues that affect their well-being.
