WDSD 2020 “We decide!” – Russia

„Я рада, что могу сама решить, что мне читать, какую одежду носить и где работать! Я хочу изучать новые вещи и знакомиться с новыми людьми. А еще мне нравится помогать людям стать красивее и счастливее. Это меня тоже радует!“

“I am glad that I can decide what to read, what to wear and where to work! I want to learn new things and meet new people. And I like to help people to become more beautiful and happy. It makes me happy too!”

All people with Down syndrome should have full participation in decision making about matters relating to or affecting their lives.
Effective and meaningful participation is a core human rights principle supported by the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD).

Starting on 1 March 2020, we show 21 examples of people with Down syndrome from across Europe to make clear: “We Decide”.
