Spread The Word To End The Word

I am reblogging this to get the word out to erase the ‘R’ word. I am also posting a post I put up last week on this same subject.

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 teeming 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:
