Buddy Walk to End #LawSyndrome – Coming to a Congressional District NEAR YOU!

What IS the Buddy Walk® to End #LawSyndrome?

This event does not include a walk or festival-like activities that may occur at your local Buddy Walk® and it is not a “Hill Day”, like the Buddy Walk® on Washington Advocacy Conference. It is a local, in-district grassroots strategy effort during election years coordinated by our advocacy and policy team at the National Down Syndrome Society (NDSS).

Please note: The 2020 Buddy Walk® to End #LawSyndrome will be conducted virtually due to COVID-19.
