The Arc Experience is hosted by The Arc Wisconsin’s Director Lisa Pugh and aims to bring you the voices of some of the state’s leading disability advocates. You can tune in to a new episode twice a month on the 1st and 15th. (Share this flyer with  friends).

Here’s a taste of what you’ll experience:

You’ll hear from Cindy Bentley, who lived for nearly two decades in a state institution and was later invited to the White House. Cindy shares some never-heard-before secrets about her conversations in the West Wing.

We’ll also talk with Beth Swedeen, who is Executive Director of the Wisconsin Board for People with Developmental Disabilities. Beth shares her top five list of important moments in Wisconsin Disability history. Does her list match yours?

You can expect The Arc Experience to feature leading voices statewide, including advocates giving back to their communities in Fond du Lac or inspiring other self-advocates in Rhinelander, even advocates who started their leadership journey in 4-H. Our guests will talk about how they overcame their fears and how they try to inspire others.
