CBS highlights NDSS’ ‘Lilly in the swamp’

Kayla McKeon

CBS’ Steve Hartman goes On the Road with Kayla McKeon, Manager of Grassroots Advocacy for the National Down Syndrome Society (NDSS) and the first registered lobbyist with Down syndrome. Kayla lobbies U.S. Congress advocating for the passage of laws that would give individuals with disabilities the opportunity to earn fair and equal wages.

“Kayla’s an incredible asset to this organization,” NDSS President and CEO Sara Hart Weir said.

Down syndrome has never held Kayla back. Kayla meets with elected officials at the Capitol and educates them on ways Congress can improve the lives of those who are differently abled.
