Use of the words ‘retard’ or ‘retarded’ hurts millions of people. Most people don’t think of these words as hate speech, but that’s exactly what it feels like to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families. It's time to raise people’s awareness of the derogatory use of the r-word and instead focus on people’s gifts and accomplishments.

Advocates for Inclusion is promoting this idea by holding a pledge drive to support the elimination of the derogatory use of the r-word from everyday speech. For each signature we receive AFI will donate $1 up to a total of $1,000 to Special Olympics Idaho. The pledge banner will be available to sign starting February 16 through March 4th.

Language affects attitudes. Attitudes impact actions. Spread the Word…to End the Spread the Word to End the Word
