Raising Awareness...
Downrightartlogo.jpg 
DOWNrightART Exhibition of the works of artists with Down sydrome established by Alexander's Angels in 2008.
 
And, Supporting Research on Down Syndrome
Down syndrome research is already shedding light upon Alzheimer's disease, cognition, the immune system, and cancer.  Thus, insight gained by these investigations, hold the potential to significantly benefit not only those with Down syndrome, but the broader general population.
