GONZALES – The Arc Community Opportunities of East Ascension has officially changed its name to The Arc East Ascension and have revealed a new logo.
The changes went into effect at the beginning of the March which was commemorated as Developmental Disability Awareness Month by President Ronald Reagan in 1987.
The National Arc recently changed its logo to reinforce its commitment to promoting and protecting the human rights of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
The Arc East Ascension change follows the lead of the organization, according to Marketing Director Sharon Morris. The organization was founded in 1964 and March is celebrated across the country with events and activities.
