How can Tennesseans Affect Change at the National Level?

DSAMT and members of its staff are working for you at the National level to advocate for important legislation that can empower those with Down syndrome to lead meaningful, included lives, and we need your help!

Ask Your Members of Congress to join the Congressional Task Force on Down Syndrome! NDSS, the Global Down Syndrome Foundation (GLOBAL) and the National Down Syndrome Congress (NDSC) support the efforts of this group of lawmakers dedicated to advancing legislation that benefits the Down syndrome community.

Take action and ask your elected officials to join the task force here!
