Ending the R-Word Begins with You
I pledge and support the elimination of the derogatory use of the r-word from everyday speech and promote the acceptance and inclusion of people with intellectual disabilities.
Why make a pledge? Because the R-word ‘retard(ed)’ is derogatory, exclusive, and offensive. When I hear the R-word I feel like Leonardo Dicaprio at the Oscar’s when he failed to win best actor for the fourth time.
Turn that frown upside down and pledge!
