It is part of our mission that we advocate for our members. DSL promotes awareness, acceptance, and inclusion of those with Down syndrome. Our advocacy work focuses on families in Kentucky & Indiana, however, we are strong supporters of the national advocacy groups as well. We want to be sure that every individual with DS is awarded the rights they deserve.
