Spread the Word

The R-word is the word ‘retard(ed)’. Why does it hurt? The R-word hurts because it is exclusive. It’s offensive. It’s derogatory.

The R-word campaign asks people to pledge to stop saying the R-word as a starting point toward creating more accepting attitudes and communities for all people.  Language affects attitudes and attitudes affect actions.  Pledge today to use respectful, people-first language.

Our annual day of awareness, the first Wednesday of every March, is fast approaching! Make sure you have all the resources you need to end the R-word on 03.04.15!

Help us raise awareness about the hurtfulness of the R-word by pledging and sharing your stories year round.

Spread the Word to End the Word! For more information click here, or pledge by visiting www.r-word.org.
