In July of 2018, the National Down Syndrome Congress unveiled a new advocacy toolkit for self-advocates. It contains useful information for self-advocates and others to become engaged in the policy and advocacy process to make their voices hear. We at DSC are very excited about this toolkit and hope that our advocates and self-advocates will review it in detail.
