This week on The Lucky Few Podcast, we’re breaking through cultural and religious stereotypes that discriminate against people with Down Syndrome, with the help of none other than Jamie Lee! Jamie is a mother of two children, Shane (5), who has Down Syndrome, and Shiloh (3). Her educational background includes a MA in Secondary Education with emphasis, English (USC), post graduate work in Paralegal studies (NYU), and a BA in Psychology with a Minor in English (UCSB). Currently, Jamie serves on the board of Club 21, a Down Syndrome advocacy group servicing families impacted by DS from infancy to adulthood for maximum inclusion, independence, and belonging. Recently, she helped launch Christ Central Southern California’s Access ministry, a group dedicated to supporting and facilitating full access to worship to those with special needs. Jamie’s greatest passion is bringing forth the value of people with all abilities to the forefront, through the context of the gospel.
Join us this week as Jamie Lee makes known the power of people with Down Syndrome that cuts across cultures, religions, and stereotypes.
