"Call Them By First Name" Campaign

July 19, 2017

Like any other campaigns towards equality for women, African-American people, and the LGBTQ community, I am launching this campaign for people with substance use and addiction problems.

 

Like any vulnerable minority, they have been called different names, most of them offensive and degrading, by society. One of the reasons for the proliferation of the careless use of such terms is mass media. This campaign does not aim to educate you with using technical terms, does not encourage you to be liberal, and does not ask you to go to the streets to protest for equality.

 

This campaign simply asks you to be as human as you can by calling people with substance use and addiction problems by their first names. This is a start of making this world a better place for them because calling them by their first name gives them a sense of dignity, which is the essence of being a human being.

 

If you want to support this campaign, why not share this on your Facebook wall, comment, like, or even print it for your office bulletin. Thank you for spending 5 seconds to read this post.
