The Arc of Pennsylvania has notified RCPA that the Pennsylvania Coalition for Inclusive Community is hosting the #CommunityStrongPA Call-In Day, to tell your legislators to vote NO on House Bill 1918 and Senate Bill 906, on Tuesday, November 12.

HB 1918 and SB 906 seek to halt the closure of Polk State Center and White Haven State Center. The bills include language that would prevent any closure of a state center until the waiting list is fully addressed, which in essence would stop the discussion indefinitely. Individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities deserve to have the opportunity to live in their own communities and not in segregated settings.

For further information, please contact Katie Yost at The Arc of Pennsylvania. Thank you for your action on this important issue.
