Spread the Word to End the Word Day

2015-stw-facebook-banner-1Spread the Word to End the Word is an ongoing effort by Special Olympics, Best Buddies and our supporters to inspire respect and acceptance through raising the consciousness of society about the R-word and how hurtful words and disrespect can be toward people with intellectual disabilities.

The campaign, created by youth, is intended to engage schools, organizations and communities to rally and pledge their support at www.r-word.org and to promote the inclusion and acceptance of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Spread the word to END the word! R-Word day will be Wednesday, March 1, 2017. We want YOU to take the pledge in stopping the use of this word.
