Long Island Celebrates! World Down Syndrome Day
March 19 - April 4
Join Alexander’s Angels and the Long Island Down syndrome community as we celebrate our loved ones with the extra chromosome. We invite you to witness Self-Advocate artists, musicians, dancers, and speakers proclaiming loud and clear: WE DECIDE!!! At the Conference, Self-advocates will introduce the researchers working to improve their quality of life; at the DOWNrightART reception, artists will share the hopes and dreams reflected in their works; at the Concert, Sujeet Desai will play the seven instruments that he masters; and the energetic “Let’s Groove” Zumba performers will send us home with a song in our hearts. If you are attending the UN Celebration in NYC, these events will take place approximately 30 minutes away. Don’t miss them!
