This is a virtual event that you can join via Zoom or UN Web TV.

Self-advocates from around the world will explain in their own words, "Inclusion Means ..."

Why 'Inclusion Means'?

People with Down syndrome have a right to be included in all parts of society, like everyone else.

Not everyone understands exactly what inclusion means or how to include people with Down syndrome.

It is important to hear from people with Down syndrome what inclusion means.
