Developmental Disability Awareness Month

Outreach with Legislators

DD Awareness Events


Each year The Arc of New Jersey and New Jersey Statewide Self-Advocacy Network hold a celebratory event to highlight the Governor's Proclamation and the Joint Legislative Resolution for Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month.

Last year we held an event at The Eickmann Center at SCARC on March 30th. Deputy Commisioner Kaylee McGuire and Assistant Commisioner Jonathan Seifried of the Division of Developmental Disabilities were in attendance as we celebrated the proclamation from the Governor's Office declaring March DD Awareness Month. Thank you to self-advocates Andrew and Lizzy for speaking at the event and to all the staff and self-advocates at SCARC who attended.

Stay tuned for info on this year's outreach event!
