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. Starting with our Member Bill of Rights here at DSL.
