It may still be a few months away, but here at Down Syndrome Australia we are already getting excited about World Down Syndrome Day 2017, and we'd love you to be getting excited about it too!
In 2017, WDSD will focus on enabling people with Down syndrome (and those who advocate for them) to speak up, be heard and influence government policy and action, to ensure that they can be included, on a full and equal basis with others, in all aspects of society.
We are encouraging people with Down syndrome to say #MyVoiceMyCommunity and show the world how people with Down syndrome participate in the community alongside everyone else.
Do YOU want to take part in this fun World Down Syndrome Day campaign? You can tell your story, share your photos and get the message out about Down syndrome at the same time! We need to know if you’re interested by Friday 9 December. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as you can!
