As we are working our way towards International FASD Day on September 9th, 2019, we would like to highlight some of the great prevention campaigns that are going on continuously throughout the year and around the world.
Have you seen the international Red Shoes Rock campaign?
International Red Shoes Rock FASD Aware Alliance is a grassroots group of committed individuals working together to break down stigma, enhance the lives of persons living with FASDs and build awareness of prenatal alcohol exposure. We stand together with friends, in families, in our communities, in our countries and with the whole world.
