This documentary follows the first 50 years of advocacy by the Arc of Minnesota, one of the nation’s first parent advocacy groups supporting children and adults with developmental disabilities. From 1952 through 2002, people with intellectual and other developmental disabilities and their families organized and fought to overcome isolation, apathy, and despair to create community-based services and supports. The Arc of Minnesota has led the way in bringing about changes in the way Minnesotans view and treat persons with developmental disabilities and their families. Today, they have access to services and opportunities that were unimaginable fifty years ago, due to The Arc of Minnesota's efforts.

The video includes four chapters:

  1. The Arc Minnesota. Advocacy and support for people with intellectual and other developmental disabilities and their families.
  2. Arc Southeastern Minnesota. Building inclusive communities in southeastern Minnesota.
