This past March people with Down syndrome gathered together with their friends and family to dance to Pharrel’s “Happy” in celebration of World Down Syndrome Day, which takes place March 21st and has been officially recognized by the United Nations since 2012. The objectives of World Down Syndrome Day, according to the website, include raising awareness that Down syndrome is a genetic condition, not an illness, and that having Down syndrome does not make a person unhealthy. They also hope to celebrate people with Down syndrome and to take steps towards ending discrimination and social stigma towards people with Down syndrome. We at DisAbility Rights Galaxy loved the video and hopefully our readers will as well!
