Have you ever witnessed someone being put down with language that made fun of their own or someone else’s identity? Has anyone ever called you out for something oppressive that you said? Have you ever struggled with trying to interrupt or be aware of when oppressive language is being used around you? Have you ever wondered what makes some words oppressive, and what would more inclusive language even look like?

The More Than Words: Inclusive Language Campaign was created to raise awareness about the importance of using inclusive language by empowering individuals to take ownership of the words they choose to use and to encourage people to examine their use of words that they know are problematic as well as words that they feel may be just fine.
