We are Generation G
Generation G: A conscious decision to be better every day.
In the last 14 years, GiGi’s Playhouse has made significant progress and impact in supporting individuals with Down syndrome, but we have only scratched the surface. Still, new parents are not receiving the positive encouragement they need from medical professionals upon receiving a diagnosis. Students with Down syndrome still experience unfounded discrimination at school and on social media. Qualified adults with Down syndrome still can’t access meaningful jobs. Dedicated locations, FREE purposeful programs, and positive support do not guarantee long-term success. There is still so much more to do. Without more actions to create lasting acceptance, opportunities for present and future generations will falter. Our kids never get to take a break from their diagnosis. Therefore, we will not stop fighting for them.
Our plan is called Generation G.
Generation G is a conscious decision to be better every day.
Generation G challenges the status quo by stepping outside of comfort zones.
Sit with a new friend at lunch.
Give an individual with a disability. an employment opportunity.
Smile & say hi to someone new.
