Help me Spread the Word to End the Word. I invite you to be a fan of respect and join me in a campaign to stop the use of the “R-word.” On 3.31.09 thousands of people across the country will pledge to end the use of the word “retard.”
Visit www.r-word.org and take the pledge and pass this email along to all your friends. Help us get 100,000 pledges and spread the word.
PS. the small print in the ads below reads:
Most people who would never knowingly use disparaging terms don't see a problem with saying "retard." This must change. It's just as hateful as any other slur. And for millions of people with Intellectual Disabilities, their families and friends, it hurts just as much. Please, don't use the R-word.
At the bottom I attached the ads. Thanks Deborah for finding out what the fine print said!
ETA: Does anyone know how to get around hotmail's spam blocker? I even tried sending the email individually to people with hotmail and it still bounced back.
