Christin Wain started this petition to Why is the word “retarded” still used in the acronym for ARC? and

I got a phone call today from ARC...and I was excited about receiving benefits to help me with her care.

Until I learned the acronym of ARC. It was like a slap to the face. My daughter is far from “retarded”.

Let’s work together to find another definition to define our beautiful babies that are not “retarded” but actually very REMARKABLE. 

Association for Remarkable Citizens sounds better anyway.
