Spread The Word To End The Word

It is so good when young people take initiative to bring about change. I share this post in support of the efforts of these folks.
Expressions can heal or hurt, let empathy be your tongue alert.

MY COLLEGE ODYSSEY

As many of you already know, I am not only an aspiring writer, but a college student studying to become an elementary school teacher with a double major in Psychology and Special Education. My roommates and I are teaming up to spread awareness to stop the offensive use of the word “retarded.” Like this post, share it, join our Facebook event below or vow to take this pledge with us!

We pledge #Respect through our words and actions. Will you? Pledge now to create communities of inclusion for people with ID.

Take the pledge:
