What Would You Do? TOMORROW!

The Weds, May 19th segment of "What Would You Do?" is a MUST WATCH! Here's the storyline:

People with intellectual disabilities have more professional opportunities than ever before, but they still face ignorance and even bigotry. Working in cooperation with the National Down Syndrome Society, an actor with Down syndrome poses as a bagger in a grocery store. But it doesn’t take long for an ignorant customer – also an actor – to start protesting. “What’s the matter with you? Are you retarded?” he complains. Will unwitting observers, waiting their turn at the cashier, take a stand against this abuse or will they ignore it?

Take a stand of course.

Greeters are great workers and baggers are very valuable.
