On March 20th and 21st, coffee shops with workers who have Down Syndrome will celebrate World Down Syndrome Day.
They will invite important leaders in their town and country to come have coffee with them on that day.
This will give these leaders a chance to talk to people with Down Syndrome and understand their point of view.
This is especially important as many people with Down Syndrome will be able to vote for the first time in the EU elections in 2024.
EU for Trisomy 21 is working with coffee shops, schools, and politicians to come together on that day.
People all over Europe are already joining in the celebration and you can too.
In the map on the left you can see where we are hosting these events.
If you want to join, You can contact EU for Trisomy 21 via email.
A platform for the collaboration of associations, citizens and politicians working together for the celebration of World Down syndrome Day, to make visible the intellectual disability in general and persons with trisomy 21 in particular (most common intellectual disability of genetic origin, also called Down syndrome).
