“We All Belong”
“We All Belong” is a powerful short video that explains, educates and empowers. It helps us deal with disability segregation in school, which is something that most all of us in the Down syndrome community face at one point or another (even us with disabilities, as I talked about in this recent post on Moxie).
“We All Belong” was produced by the Northwest Down Syndrome Association, located in Portland, Oregon. Even if you don’t live in Portland, theirs is a great organization to tap into for resources, ideas, and inspiration (like the “Kindergarten Cohort”! Brilliant! I want to know more!).
