The heart symbolizes our moral and emotional core. As an organization, we are not motivated to act solely because some of our members have Down syndrome. We do it because all people have something to offer, regardless of their intellectual ability, and because all people deserve an opportunity to live a life of dignity and purpose.

The base, formed by the words Connecticut Down Syndrome Congress, represents the foundation of support we provide to people in Connecticut who are touched by Down syndrome. We come together as individuals of varied viewpoints, in order that we might speak with one voice as we assist, educate and advocate for each other and for the ones we love.
