Little People work tirelessly to rise above the negative stereotypes involved with discrimination and bigotry. The State of Arizona took a big step forward on 02/20/13 by Proclaiming October as Dwarfism Awareness Month.
We have been slapped in the face by the Fort McDowell Casino who runs constant television advertisements promoting "Extreme Midget Wrestling" to be held on August 10, 2013.
We are Petitioning the Fort McDowell Casino to cease their affiliation with and promotion of midget wrestling as it is both degrading and harmful to little people and their families (who are also patrons).

By signing this Petition you are helping to educate the public and raise awareness of Dwarfism. Imagine if you were that professional who worked so hard to be considered equal to your peers as they watched a humiliating commercial that inevitably squashed decades of hard work.
More than 80% of children born with dwarfism have average-height parents and siblings. Imagine if you were that new parent that watched that commercial thinking that their own child would have no other choice for employment than that?
