“¡Hoy es el Día Mundial del Síndrome de Down! Estamos atravesando tiempos increíblemente difíciles ahora mismo y una de las mejores maneras de superarlo es manteniéndonos conectados con las personas que amamos mientras estamos en cuarentena. Esta es Megan Bomgaars, mi querida amiga a la cual conocí a través de Best Buddies, una increíble organización que es muy cercana a mi corazón”, comenzó escribiendo la intérprete.

Después, continuó describiendo a su amiga, quien resulta ser también una reconocida oradora y empresaria: “Ella tiene el mejor sentido del humor y es una hermosa persona de adentro hacia afuera.

Happy #WorldDownSyndromeDay! This year's theme, #WeDecide, focuses on the belief that all people with Down syndrome should have full participation in decision making about matters relating to or affecting their lives.⠀ ⠀ The reality today is that prevailing negative attitudes, low expectations, discrimination and exclusion, ensure that people with Down syndrome are left behind and do not have opportunities to participate fully in decision making about matters relating to or affecting their lives at all levels. This occurs in society, but also within the disability community and the Down syndrome community.⠀ ⠀ At the root of this discrimination and exclusion is a lack of understanding of the challenges individuals face across their lifetimes and a failure to support them with the opportunities and tools needed to participate meaningfully.⠀ ⠀ Across areas of life such as lifelong personal development, personal relationships, education, healthcare, work and livelihood, recreation and leisure and participation in public life, ALL people with Down syndrome must participate in decision making, included on a full and equal basis with others.⠀ ⠀ People with Down syndrome and those who support and work with them must be empowered to advocate for these opportunities.⠀ ⠀ They can then reach out to other key stakeholders including education, health and social care professionals, employers, community and public bodies, media and the wider community to ensure they understand how to provide these opportunities and encourage these stakeholders to disseminate this message to bring about change.⠀ ⠀ Each year the voice of people with Down syndrome, and those who live and work with them, grows louder. But there is still so much more we can do.⠀ ⠀ Best Buddies is doing its part by creating opportunities for people with Down syndrome to experience meaningful friendships, be able to work in the community, self advocate, and live independently. When they decide, we all win!⠀ ⠀ Ensure the future of Best Buddies programs during these challenging times by making a donation via our Instagram Donate Button ❤️
