What is Down Syndrome Awareness Month?

Originally established in the 1980s, the month of October is set aside to raise understanding of Down syndrome and the amazing abilities people with the diagnosis have.

I Accept You Pledge

In the spirit of Down syndrome Awareness Month, we are asking you to take the "I Accept You" pledge, a commitment to being accepting, generous, and kind!

October is Down Syndrome Awareness Month and around here we like to call it Acceptance Month!

This Down Syndrome Awareness Month, all it takes is one simple step to make a difference in your life and the lives of others: take the “I Accept You” pledge. You’ll become a part of #GenerationG, an army of change-makers set on making the world a kinder, better place for all people. And we’ll ask you to proudly show your commitment by drawing a “G” in a heart on your hand, and sharing it on all your social media channels!
