The month of March is Developmental Disability Awareness Month. Chapters of The Arc throughout the country hosted many different events in order to continue to raise awareness about the I/DD community. This past week, a display table was set up in the State House in Trenton with the theme of "Everyone Belongs". Our very own self advocates came out to speak with our local Assembly men/women and Senators about DD Awareness Month and what it means to them.
