SAY: The Stuttering Association for the Young



For many children who stutter, instead of experiencing the positive social interactions that build self-esteem, they face fear, ridicule, and bullying – intensely negative interactions that deprive them of the joy of childhood.

SAY: DC believes that every voice matters. We offer a broad range of programs in the DMV and this year alone, SAY: DC will underwrite more than $250,000 in programmatic costs so that all families have access to these important programs. When you support SAY, you make anything possible in the life of a child who stutters.

Please help SAY: DC offer innovative programs for young people who stutter and their families.


Donating a major gift helps SAY: DC continue its mission to empower children who stutter and inspire the world to treat them with compassion and respect so that they can achieve their dreams. To date, no child has been denied access to our innovative programming due to a family’s inability to pay. Won’t you please consider a Major Gift to SAY: DC today?

Please contact Taro Alexander, Founder of SAY & Co-Founder of SAY: DC, at or 202-919-4848 to discuss a major gift of cash or stock.
