Spread the Word to End the Word


On March 1st, the R-Word Campaign will be officially underway!
Join us in taking the pledge to spread the word to end the word all year long.

The “Spread the Word to End the Word” campaign is an ongoing effort by Special Olympics, Best Buddies International and Special Olympics supporters to raise the consciousness of society and the dehumanizing and hurtful effects of the word “retard(ed)” and encourage people to pledge respect to everyone. The campaign, created by youth, is intended to engage schools, organizations and communities to rally and pledge their support at www.r-word.org in order to promote respect, the inclusion and acceptance of people with intellectual disabilities.
