KIDS is open to families who have a child with Down syndrome, anyone who has a family or friend with Down syndrome, or anyone who has a heart for them. Here is the information for our gathering this year:
Friday, January 19, 2017
10:30 a.m. to Noon
National Right to Life Committee
512 10th Street, NW
The National Right to Life Committee generously provides sandwiches, snacks, and beverages, in addition to a space to meet. While enjoying refreshments, families and friends of individuals with Down syndrome will have time to visit with each other. Several families return each year, and it is a nice reunion. We welcome new attendees as well!
If you plan on joining us, please e-mail Eileen. (See the WELCOME TO KIDS section to the right.) Even if it is a last minute decision, we would love to see you there!
NRLC is conveniently located a few blocks from the National Mall where the Rally is held and where the March begins. We will bundle up and head over to the Mall around noon.

We look forward to the day when we can hold an annual celebration of the end of legalized abortion of unborn babies with Down syndrome, and all unborn babies. But for now, we will March in solidarity with these innocent lives, proclaim the joy our family members and friends with Down syndrome bring to our lives, and hope and pray that our witness will save lives.
As the motto for this year's March for Life proclaims: Love Saves Lives!
