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.

Today is Spread the Word to End the Word.  Over the past six years, thousands have pledged their support to the above words.  I’ve made my pledge.  Have you?

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!
