“I don’t want to be a cop, I want to be a teacher. You’re allowed to be humiliating, degrading and hurtful. I’m allowed to petition you to at least recognize what you say and be aware of the option you have to stop.” -Timothy Shriver, Special Olympics Chairman & CEO

Join the effort to stop casual, derogatory use of the R word here.

Words do hurt. Let’s change them.
