The Pennsylvania Developmental Disabilities Council recently launched a statewide campaign to help eliminate the stigma associated with people with disabilities.  The campaign is designed to get conversations started about this important topic and ask people “What are you thinking?”  We are asking everyone to visit the Let’sThinkAgain.org website.  Here viewers can watch powerful videos of people with disabilities responding to stigmatizing statements they hear on a daily basis.

“If people ignore their discomfort and make the decision to interact with people with disabilities, we will make a significant impact on stigma.  I want to live in a society where our differences are not viewed as deficits,” tells Karen Gross.

To join the cause visit www.LetsThinkAgain.org or call 717-432-2468.
