We’re More Alike Than Different.
The purpose of this campaign is to bring to light the disparities that people with Down syndrome face in education, the work force and even the general community, as well as dispel myths associated with having this genetic disorder. The message is simple, compelling and delivered by self-advocates – their stories told in their voices.
See the complete micro site for a comprehensive look at what challenges individuals with Down syndrome may face.
You can donate now to the campaign fund. These resources will help to bring the message that people with Down syndrome are more like their peers than different- to doctors, teachers, employers and your neighbors.
So how else can you get involved?
Help us share this message locally, nationally and even internationally!
Each time our message appears on TV or in newspapers, the world will be reminded that people with Down syndrome are more like everybody else than different. That they love to dance, bowl, have pets and jobs. That they cope with everyday challenges and dream big dreams. That, like all people, they deserve respect and a fair break.
The NDSC has produced a total of nine television public service announcements – five in English and four in Spanish. Here you will find previews of video links and print copies available for download.
