Take the “3-21 Challenge” for the Down Syndrome Protection Act

March 14, 2019 | No comments | Posted in Disability Rights | Tags: ,

March 20th not only marks the beginning of Spring but also the start of new life for Pennsylvania’s Down Syndrome Protection Act.

State elected officials announced they will hold a press conference Wednesday, March 20th to announce the introduction of House Bill 321, this session’s Down Syndrome Protection Act.

The following day, March 21, is World Down Syndrome Day. 3/21 symbolizes trisomy 21, better known as Down syndrome, which is a 3rd copy of the 21st chromosome.

From the start of the press conference to the end of World Down Syndrome Day, we want to encourage as many calls into the state Senate and House offices as possible in support of the Down Syndrome Protection Act. That’s where the 3-21 Challenge comes in.

3 Calls in 21 Hours

The challenge is pretty simply. From the start of this press conference to the end of World Down Syndrome Day, make three phone calls:

  1. Your State Representative – “Please support the Down Syndrome Protection Act – House Bill 321.”
  2. Your State Senator – “Please support the Down Syndrome Protection Act.”
  3. A friend or family member – “Join me in the 3-21 Challenge.”

If you need phone numbers, you can access them through our form on our action alert at pafamily.org/protect.

The 21 hour span for the challenge: Wednesday, March 20 (10am – 7pm) – Thursday, March 21 (7am – 7pm)

Thank you in advance for taking on this 3-21 Challenge. With children being targeted for abortion right here in Pennsylvania simply because they have Down syndrome, may this challenge help us advance the Down Syndrome Protection Act, House Bill 321, this session.
