KIDS Gathering at 2013 March for Life in DC

It's that time of year again!  The 5th annual Keep Infants with Down Syndrome (KIDS) gathering will take place prior to the March for Life in Washington, DC.  Here are the details:

Date:   Friday, January 25, 2013
Time:  10:30 a.m. - Noon
Place:  National Right to Life Committee HQ
            512 10th Street, NW, Washington, DC

This event is open to individuals with Down syndrome and their families and friends.  NRLC generously provides a place for us to meet that is close to the start of the march, and also provides sandwiches and refreshments.  For the past 4 years we have been honored to have Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers as our special guest.  Cathy is the mother of a little boy named Cole, who has Down syndrome, and she is the founder and co-chair of the Congressional Down Syndrome Caucus.  At this time, we are not sure whether she will be joining us, but we will update this blog when we know.

Around noon, for those who would like to join us in the march, we will head out as a group to join the other several hundred thousand marchers at the National Mall. 

Out of all the thousands and thousands of groups that are represented in the march, KIDS may be the only organization that represents a group of people who are specifically sought out and targeted for abortion--namely, unborn babies with Down syndrome. 

If you have Down syndrome or have a family member or friend with Down syndrome, please join us so that we will be well represented at the March for Life!  Signs will be provided.  (It would be helpful to contact either Eileen or Leticia to let us know that you plan on attending.  Please see the e-mail links on the right sidebar.)
