The R-word is the word ‘retard(ed)’. Why does it hurt? The R-word hurts because it is exclusive. It’s offensive. It’s derogatory. The R-word is hate speech. Individuals and families of those with intellectual disability think the R-Word is hurtful when used in jokes or as part of everyday speech.
TAKE THE PLEDGE TODAY to support the elimination of the derogatory use of the r-word from everyday speech and promote the acceptance and inclusion of people with intellectual disabilities.
