The National Down Syndrome Society (NDSS) is horrified by the video of former NFL football player Zac Stacy attacking the mother of his child. NDSS last partnered with him in 2019 to conduct a football clinic for individuals with Down syndrome and their siblings. We do not have a current partnership with Zac, and we will not renew our partnership with him. This terrible act of violence goes against our core values as an organization. Our support goes to the victim and her family.
