World Down Syndrome Day

"Join our cause to create a single global voice for advocating for the rights, inclusion and well being of people with Down syndrome on 21 March."

21 March 2014 will mark the 9th anniversary of World Down Syndrome Day (and for the third year of official observation of the days by the United Nations). Each year, the voices of people with Down syndrome, and those who live and work with them, grows louder. But there is still so much more we can do.

Down Syndrome International encourages our friends all over the World to choose your own themes, activities and events to help raise awareness of what Down syndrome is, what it means to have Down syndrome, and how people with Down syndrome play a vital role in our lives and communities. The internet is a powerful tool for raising awareness and Down Syndrome International encourages people to celebrate World Down Syndrome Day through their own websites, blogs and social networking sites.
