The Arc of Atlantic County is a human rights organization that was founded on the principle that all persons deserve the same legal, civil, and human rights as other citizens.

As a community based organization, we take this responsibility seriously and wholeheartedly support the statement of Peter Berns from The Arc US: “We all must step up and speak out, including our nation’s leaders, to uphold the rights of communities of color to be free from over policing, police brutality, misconduct, harassment, and racism. To be silent is to be complicit.”
