World Down Syndrome Day 2018 Theme "What I bring to my community"
World Down Syndrome Day (WDSD), 21 March, is a global awareness day which has been officially observed by the United Nations since 2012. All people with Down syndrome must have opportunities to contribute to the community and live valued lives, included on a full and equal basis with others, in all aspects of society. People with Down syndrome can and do bring so much to the community, wherever they live around the world when given the opportunity. But many are prevented from making meaningful contributions.
On World Down Syndrome Day, Wednesday 21 March 2018, we are hosting a panel of young adults with Down syndrome who will share "what I bring to my community" at our first "3/21 Over 21 Party." The evening will include appetizers, beer and wine and the cost is $50 per person.
