Arc Creates Huge Mosaic Mural to Highlight the Need for Greater Respect of People with Disabilities

The Arc’s campaign has taken a giant leap into public awareness with this “National Wall of Respect.” It is the latest effort in The Arc’s “Value of One” initiative that uses positive narratives and imagery to show that every life has value and people with developmental disabilities deserve full citizenship .
