WHY PLEDGE?

The R-word is the word “retard(ed)”. Why does it hurt? The R-word hurts because it is exclusive. It’s offensive. It’s derogatory.

Our campaign asks people to pledge to stop saying the R-word as a starting point toward creating more accepting attitudes and communities for all people.  Language affects attitudes and attitudes affect actions. Pledge today to use respectful, people-first language.

TAKE THE PLEDGE NOW

TAKE THE PLEDGE TO TAKE A STAND
