Our goal is to shift “awareness” to “action.” It’s one thing to passively acknowledge people of other backgrounds. But it’s so much more powerful when you take action to support others. As part of #GenerationG, you’ll help put an end to bullying and prejudice through ongoing actions. Stay tuned to your inbox for more things you can do now that you’re #GenerationG!

Join our community by taking the pledge for global acceptance!

#GenerationG: A conscious decision to be better every day.

In the last 20 years, GiGi’s Playhouse has made amazing progress in building support for individuals with Down syndrome. But we have only scratched the surface. Parents of babies with Down syndrome still rarely receive positive encouragement from their medical teams, both prior to birth and after. Students with Down syndrome still experience unfounded discrimination at school and on social media. Qualified adults with Down syndrome still can’t access meaningful jobs.

Fortunately, our achievement centers across the country provide FREE programming that enables people with Down syndrome to live happy and healthy lives! And we’re leading a nationwide campaign for acceptance, not just of people with Down syndrome, but for all people!
