We Decide: This year’s theme of World Down Syndrome Day promotes the idea that all people with Down syndrome should have full participation in decision making about matters relating to or affecting their lives.

Today’s mural lights up blue and yellow to shine a light on people with Down syndrome and help bring awareness worldwide. 3/21 (to signify the triplication of the 21st chromosome which causes Down syndrome) has been observed this way by the United Nations since 2012. Learn more here.

You too can blaze a trail for people with DS, celebrate World Down Syndrome Day and increase awareness for DS in the World—you can light it up blue and yellow, wear your crazy blue and yellow socks but most importantly share why you are doing it!
