BUFFALO, N.Y. — The Museum of Disability History showcased "In Celebration of Down Syndrome" for World Down Syndrome Day Wednesday.
The Down Syndrome Parents Group teamed up with the museum to host the event.
People with Down syndrome were invited to share their stories while visiting.
The exhibit featured vibrant photographs, pop culture and quick snippets of history.
The parents group’s president, Amy Monson, says spreading awareness about Down syndrome is vital because there are still many misconceptions.
"I think it's awesome for the community. They're really some of the most marginalized and really pitied groups. The future has never been brighter for people with Down syndrome,” said Monson.
The parents group also visited birthing centers around Buffalo to educate doctors and patients about Down syndrome.
