Event Details

JLY Films' and the Down Syndrome Guild of Greater KC's are honored to receive the TASH Positive Images in Media Award at the TASH 2013 National Conference held in Chicago on December 11-13.  To celebrate, JLY is hosting its first ever Chicago screening of its award winning production, Just Like You - Down Syndrome.  


“Just Like You - Down Syndrome uses the voices and faces of people with and without Down syndrome to beautifully express the philosophy that the Special Olympics shares: to value others for their gifts, to approach each other with an eye to valuing what matters most, and to look past the superficial and our prejudices to embrace the power of the human spirit.

--Tim Shriver, Chairman Special Olympics

Join us for a fabulous evening on the red carpet at theWIT hotel.  Cocktails and appetizers will be served in the Dickinson Room. Adjacent to the cocktail party, don't miss one of the three 20 minute showings of Just Like You - Down Syndrome and a preview of Just Like You - Autism , a high definition multimedia screening room that provides an unforgettable viewing experience.  The filmmakers will be on hand for a Q and A at 8:30.  

With your support, JLY can continue to provide their films - Burns, Cancer and Down syndrome (in Spanish and Portuguese) free of charge to hospitals, schools and community organizations worldwide.  For example, we are honored to be able to help underwrite and facilitate a public family screening for 400 people at the 2013 TASH National Conference immediately preceding this event.  Your donations will also help further their current production of JLY-Autism.  You will help JLY meet the requests they have received to translate current films into Russian, Thai, Greek, Polish, Bulgarian and Japanese.  And, it will allow JLY to answer the need expressed by many for more JLY films on subjects like Visual Impairment, Diabetes, Asthma, Divorce, Touretts syndrome, Muscular Distrophy, Foster Care, Cerebral Palsy, Food Allergies, Spinal Muscular Atrophy, LGBT and so many more. 

While at theWIT be sure and stop by theROOF, named ‘One of Three Top Rooftop Lounges in the World’ by Travel and Leisure magazine.  It offers exceptional city views — unparalleled among Chicago rooftop bars — from the 27th floor.  You can also visit the glass-enclosed platform suspended over the edge of the hotel for an exhilarating view of Lake Michigan, Millennium Park and surrounding downtown architecture.

Just Like You Films

Just Like You Films is an internationally recognized 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that seeks to educate the world’s first generation, who because of their knowledge and familiarity of individuals’ unique differences are more compassionate and more connected human beings.

Our four films include Just Like You - Burns, Cancer, Down Syndrome and Just Like You - I Care for a Child Burn Survivor. We are currently in production of Just Like You - Autism. Our films have been viewed over 150,000 times on Youtube and distributed across the U.S. and worldwide. Recently, the Brazilian government authorized a program where JLY - Down Syndrome will be played in every state health care facility in their country. We partner with national organizations like the Phoenix Society for Burn Survivors, the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and the Down Syndrome Guild. In 2013, the United Nations presented our Down Syndrome film to its members in a general session. And, we were honored with the 2013 TASH Positive Images in the Media Award. We receive incredible comments like these everyday...

Just Like You Down Syndrome uses the voices and faces of people with and without Down syndrome to beautifully express the philosophy that the Special Olympics shares: to value others for their gifts, to approach each other with an eye to valuing what matters most, and to look past the superficial and our prejudices to embrace the power of the human spirit.”

-Tim Shriver, Chairman Special Olympics

“Peer support is so valuable to children battling a chronic illness and Just Like You Films has provided a wonderful resource to encourage this support to continue from the time a child is diagnosed to when they are able to return to school. We are so grateful to have this tool to compliment the education we provide to teachers and classmates of children diagnosed with cancer. What better explanation could there be than from the kids themselves? Thank you Just Like You Films and all those who support them.”

- Kim Lovitt, LMSW, Hematology Oncology, Social Work Coordinator,The Children's Mercy Hospitals and Clinics.

You can view JLY films and learn more about us at our website justlikeyoufilms.org.

We’d love any assistance you can give us in making sure JLY films are made available to those that can use them the most. Thanks so much for your donation and for helping us spread the knowledge, build understanding and create acceptance!
