The key objectives of the NDSS DS-AMBASSADOR® Program are:
- Strengthen and organize the Down syndrome community’s grassroots advocacy network across the US by encouraging more advocates to become active in supporting legislative efforts that are beneficial to the Down syndrome community.
- Be more effective on Capitol Hill by building relationships in Washington, DC, with Members of Congress and staff.
- Engage more affiliates and advocates to provide valued input and feedback to NDSS.
- Grow the NDSS DS-AMBASSADOR® Program to 435 participants – one for each congressional district in the US.
Participants in the program are crucial to the success of NDSS.
