a common goal and symbol
There are a number of organizations supporting the acceptance and inclusion of people with Down Syndrome. We all share a common goal. Yet, Down syndrome lacks a common identity. So we created one. This universal symbol of DS brings forward in a unique way the one thing that makes Trisomy 21 special— one extra chromosome. With this universal symbol we hope to gain better awareness and ultimately create better outcomes for the individuals and families affected by DS.
