As part of National Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month it is time to Spread the Word to End the Word™ and build awareness for society to stop and think about its' use of the R-word. Most people don't think of this word as hate speech, but that's exactly what it feels like to millions of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, their families and friends. The R-word is just as offensive as any other slur. Visit www.r-word.org
to make your pledge today.
