Human Rights and people with ASDD


Most ASDD organizations around the world support October the 25th as the International Dwarfism Awareness Day. Foundation ALPE has sum up to the celebration taking a step forward: not just social networks sharing of images but promotion of social dialogue, thought on ASDD social issues in the frame of international and national legal and ethical codes. October conversations will hold a weekly encounter between prominent Spanish experts of the topics. Because most awareness campaigns consists just of emotional, non conceptual or elaborated discourse, ALPE wants to give October a deeper meaning, create the opportunity to include general society and social agents in the discussions on the most relevant issues persons with ASDD face.

Of course, on October the 25th we’ll all raise our hand on social networks. It’s International Dwarfism Awareness Day! We invite all of you to join and support us.

La Fundación ALPE Acondroplasia fue creada el 24 de enero de 2000 gracias al entusiasmo de varias personas, Carmen Alonso, Miguel López y la familia Press-Lewis, fundamentalmente. La familia Press-Lewis había fundado ProChon Biotech Ltd. en Tel-Aviv (Israel) para la búsqueda de una terapia para la acondroplasia. ProChon fue germen de avances científicos en la investigación de la acondroplasia que dan frutos cada vez más interesantes.
