This video was created by the Treasure Valley Down Syndrome Association in support of the Spread the Word to End the Word campaign, an on-going initiative from Special Olympics and Best Buddies to eradicate the derogatory use of the word "retard(ed)" from everyday use and promote the inclusion and acceptance of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Five siblings of individuals with Down syndrome in Idaho's Treasure Valley volunteered to help us spread the word that their brother or sister with Down syndrome is not defined by their disability.

A big thanks to all those who helped us create this video by starring in it: Therese and Liam Murphy; Gabriela, Christopher and Mikaela Olmos; Tess and Isabelle Scott; Tegan and Madison Maestretti; and Austin Schaffer and Aaden Vranish. And a HUGE thank you to Sara Cox for producing the video, Alex Post who scored the original music, and our amazing videographer who volunteered his time to create this for us, Zach Johnson.

Help us spread a message of acceptance and speak out against the r-word!
