Our self advocates have spoken, and what they have to say is very important. Read the Self Advocate Resolution passed at our convention.
National Down Syndrome Congress
SELF ADVOCATE RESOLUTION
I have Down syndrome, and it is important to me that I am able to enjoy life to the fullest.
I want to volunteer, work and be seen as a productive member of society.
I want to spend leisure time with my friends and family and have lots of fun.
I want to be welcomed and have a place in community activities.
I want to live as independently as I can and make my own decisions.
I want access to a good education and opportunities for life-long learning.
I have Down syndrome, and I am proud of who I am!
