NDSS Statement on Congressman Ander Crenshaw (R-FL) Retirement

The National Down Syndrome Society (NDSS) would like to thank Congressman Ander Crenshaw (R-FL) for his many years in public service, and we wish him the best in his well-deserved retirement. A champion for the Down syndrome and broader disability community, Rep. Crenshaw spent many decades in office, making significant contributions that will benefit those who have disabilities and their families for decades.

During his 16 years in Congress, Crenshaw has fought tirelessly to ensure that people with Down syndrome have the same rights and freedoms that those without disabilities enjoy. He was the original champion and author of the Stephen Beck Jr., Achieving a Better Life Experience (ABLE) Act and played an integral role in its passage, which took nearly a decade.

"Congressman Crenshaw has been a great advocate and friend to our organization and to our families,” said NDSS President Sara Hart Weir. "We are grateful for his leadership and dedication to the Down Syndrome community, as we continue to work collectively to ensure individuals with Down Syndrome can lead full productive lives."
