We often get requests for information on legislative issues that may impact individuals with Down Syndrome and their families. As a result and in support of our organization's mission to "provide support to individuals with Down syndrome and their families through awareness and engagement, advocacy and outreach, education, and the exchange of ideas and experiences”, we are passing along this information so people can educate themselves about various issues at the local, state, and federal level. The information presented does not necessarily express the views of The Down Syndrome Partnership of North Texas, its’ staff or members of our board of directors.
