In the News - April 2013

Every month I compile a list of the stories I post on Down Wit Dat's Facebook page. They are stories of activism, of inclusion, of advocacy, of education, of hope and awareness. April was a busy month, including the ongoing efforts of the Down syndrome community to demand justice for Robert Ethan Saylor and to illuminate an ongoing bias towards those with Trisomy 21.
