World Down Syndrome Day 2024 – End the Stereotypes

March 21

For World Down Syndrome Day 2024, we call for people around the world to
#EndTheStereotypes – stereotypes that prevent people with Down syndrome and intellectual disabilities from being treated like other people and experiencing real inclusion.

Learn about Down syndrome from those who know best (people with Down syndrome), speak up against stereotypes, and spread awareness through the Lots of Socks campaign – on March 21st, wear some socks that will get you noticed, and when they ask why, let them know about World Down Syndrome Day and how they can get involved too!
