    Niagara Falls Lights up for DES Awareness Week

    Participation in 2021 DES Awareness Week

    DES Awareness Week was launched in 1985 by President Ronald Reagan as the national DES awareness week in the United States.

    D.E.S is it joined this year with our partner, DES Info, to celebrate DES Awareness Week, which was held from April 27 to May 1, 2021.

    On the occasion of this event, many illuminations took place in the United States. The most impressive, and marking the opening of the week, was undoubtedly the one at Niagara Falls. This week has allowed us to share many testimonies of victims.

    This is the first time in France that the DES awareness week is celebrated. Indeed, at this time, not even a day is dedicated in France to the victims of DES.

    From now on, our association D.E.S is it will celebrate it every year.
