Tuesday, March 31 is here!! Sometime during this day please remember the end the r-word campaign. Tell someone about this campaign and how the r-word can hurt. I have included a number of clips with this posting. There are just so many awesome public service announcements out there – it is just so difficult to select just one. If you don’t watch all of them, please be sure to at least watch the last one if you haven’t already seen it. It is from a documentary called Offense Taken. Note to self: oh great now another documentary that I have to find (oh I love documentaries)! I stumbled upon this trailer on youtube tonight and found this documentary so interesting. It is about a community’s efforts to combat use of the r-word by raising awareness of how it hurts those who know individuals with cognitive disabilities. The most important thing about March 31st is don’t just remember the end the r-word campaign on this day – please remember it every day! Thanks!
