On March 21, 2017, DSNGG families teamed up with the Triangle Down Syndrome Network (TDSN) families for a day of impactful advocacy that resulted in HB499, which would provide $1 million in funding for research and programs that lead to employment for individuals with Down syndrome.

The NDSS Buddy Walk® on Washington is an annual two-day advocacy conference that brings the Down syndrome community together to advocate for legislative priorities that impact the lives of people with Down syndrome and their families.

DSNGG board member Korey Hickling organized a fundraiser that helped kickstart a new non-profit coffee shop in the Greensboro area. "A Special Blend" will provide job opportunities for individuals with special needs. Follow them on Facebook!

DSNGG is proud to

have been part of the inaugural UNITE Downtown Greensboro event, which promoted and celebrated inclusion on a city-wide level

Law Syndrome continues to limit the community of people with Down Syndrome and people with disabilities to the poverty line. This is not acceptable. We must continue fighting for financial independence.
