DSN advocates for the protection of rights for my nephew who has DS. DSN's efforts have raised awareness about DS issues at the local and state as well as national levels. I fully support the aspirations of this organization.

This group was fun to watch in the Arizona State homecoming pareade. They looked like they were having so much fun. The children were so cute.

This organisation has been great in that it connects families together in the Phoenix area. I have had the opportunity to speak with people and share experience, knowlege as well as prideful and difficult times. I like it as a support, and in that way it has been of wonderful value to me and my family. L Johnson
