be the change for the Tourette Community

Stop using Tourette Syndrome as a punchline.

People with Tourette Syndrome have long been misunderstood and mocked. Underneath the uncontrollable symptoms are children and adults – human beings – with hopes, dreams and feelings.

I pledge to stop using Tourette Syndrome as a punchline, a descriptive term, or a slur.

I pledge to speak out, educate and inspire others to be open-minded and break free of the stigmas that surround this disorder.

I pledge to create a world where people are seen for who they are and not their tics.

I pledge to be the change for the Tourette Community.


have pledged to be the change.
