The Respect Campaign is an ongoing effort to inspire respect and acceptance by raising the consciousness of society about the word "retard(ed)" and other derogatory language as a starting point toward creating more inclusive attitudes and communities for all people.

Respectful and inclusive language is essential to the movement for the dignity and humanity of people with intellectual disabilities. However, much of society does not recognize the hurtful, dehumanizing and exclusive effects of the R-Word.

Students with disabilities are 2-3 times more likely to get bullied than their peers without disabilities.
