 We Took THE

“R”-WORD

Out of Our Corporate Name

 

THE PLEDGE

I _________________________________, pledge that I will not use the words “r#tard” or “r#etarded” in a derogatory way.  I understand that this is hurtful to people who have intellectual disabilities and people who love them.  I will be careful with my words.  I will also ask others not to use these words.

 

(send this in and we’ll add it to our Pledge Wall)
