Our friends at DSALA shared with us an announcement from Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers from Washington State. She is an amazing advocate on Capitol Hill for Down syndrome and recently co-sponsored resolution, H.Res. 1576, which passed the House last week. This resolution would establish a National Day of Recognition for Parents of Special Needs Children. She joined with 41 of her colleagues in a bipartisan way to highlight the importance of recognizing parents of special needs children.
Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers has a young son with Down syndrome. She is a leader in the Congressional Down Syndrome Caucus. You can follow her work by visiting her website and signing up for her e-mail alerts.
