In this powerful PSA, Spread the Word to End the Word reminds us that using the word “retard” is simply not acceptable – any more than we would turn a blind eye to the use of minority slurs.
The words we use matter, they have to power to hurt or heal. Let’s make sure the only R-word we use is Respect.
Show your support by taking the pledge of respect and then share it on Twitter by tweeting the following:
I pledge #Respect thru my words & actions. Will you? Pledge now
