SpArc Philadelphia is a family. Families support one another - providing help wherever they can to make sure everyone stays happy, healthy, and included. How do we do that?
Check us out.

SpArc Philadelphia stands with the Black community in opposition to racial bias and inequity. Recent events have clearly illustrated the consistent systemic racism that plagues our country, and we recognize the years of pent-up frustration and anger. We call for an end to the violence caused by institutional racism. We call for an end to discrimination based on race, and we call for the creation of thoughtful and unifying policies that will end bias. As an organization dedicated to equity and access for all, SpArc Philadelphia and our family of organizations hope that the recent tragic events will serve as a catalyst for real change, justice, equality, inclusion, and dignity for every citizen of our country.

News & Notes

Brittany Gunning is an Inclusion Specialist for The Arc of Philadelphia’s Include Me program. Inclusion Specialists are prepared to provide onsite support and training for school personnel/student teams, including administrators, general and special education teachers, guidance counselors, school nurses, para-professionals and support staff, as well as family members of children with disabilities in Pennsylvania school districts. We talked with Brittany to learn more about her role and why it is important.

Your voice is needed to help us understand barriers and inequities that people with disabilities in our communities have experienced through the pandemic.
