Spread the Word to End the Word!

March is the official Spread the Word to End the Word global awareness month!
Special Olympics North Carolina will celebrate Spread the Word to End the Word all spring.  We encourage you to take the pledge today (online pledge below) and refrain from using the hurtful r-word (retard(ed).
The medical term for people with intellectual disabilities has long been turned into a derogatory slur with damaging effects.  Instead of using the r-word to demean and ostracize people, Spread the Word to End the Word and help build a more inclusive society.  Become a fan of the new r-word: RESPECT!
