The Oz Squad

The Oz Squad badge
We may not have special suits.

We may not be physically able to leap tall buildings in a single bound.

We are an elite internet watchgroup of bloggers called the Oz Squad, commandeered by Dan Niblock of Down With Oz and united by our desire to advocate and educate.

Our mission: To take a stand online whenever we encounter something cruel or insensitive or inaccurate about people with Down syndrome. To educate the public. Remind the rest of the world that our children are valuable individuals. Read more at Down With Oz: Call to Arms?

Our children, with their extra chromosomes, power our spirits. Isn't that the best kind of superpower to harness?

To learn more about us or join the team, please visit Down With Oz: Liftoff.

update as of 7/20/2009: The Oz Squad has its own blog.
