Advocacy

Our Mission

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.

Ways We Advocate:

  • Self-Advocacy
  • Legislative Advocacy
  • Community Advocacy
  • Healthcare Advocacy
  • COVID-19 Vaccine Advocacy
  • Educational/School Advocacy

Request A Speaker

DSL’s executive director, Julie Torzewski, as well as many others on the DSL Leadership Team, are available to speak on a variety of advocacy, education, and Down syndrome-related topics. Self-advocates with Down syndrome can also be requested to speak to your group or at an event.
