So it goes...
"I pledge that I will not use the words “retard” or “retarded” to mean “stupid.” I understand this word is hurtful to kind, productive, inspirational people. I pledge to take responsibility for the power words have on others – because we all have the power to open hearts and change minds"
The R-Word campaign was designed to communicate the hurtful nature of the "r-word" and remove it from daily use; to help people understand that this word is NOT acceptable under any circumstance. The campaign also seeks to promote RESPECT, unity, friendship and inclusion.
Take the pledge people!
