Sen Tartaglione meets with The Arc

Sen Tartaglione meets with The Arc

Senator Christine (Tina) Tartaglione meets with representatives of The Arc of Philadelphia to discuss legislation which would require state funding to match federal funds to prepare students with intellectual disabilities for employment in the community. Senator Tartaglione, a long-time advocate for The Arc, was given the "I Want to Work" sign. With her are (seated left) Tanya Regli, Executive Director of The Arc of Philadelphia; and (standing left to right) Cathy Roccia-Meier, board member of The Arc; her son Pierce Meier, a student at the Science Leadership Academy; and William Del Toro, a student at CCP (Community College of Philadelphia).
