Pledge to End the R-Word

Wed, 03/02/2016 - 6:00am - 11:59pm

Take a stand against using the word retarded.

Our MOVE TO INCLUDE partner, the Golisano Foundation, is once again challenging the Rochester community to spread the word to “End the R-Word”. The campaign, which has become one of the largest in the nation for a single region, is part of the national Spread the Word to End the Word project. It asks people to take a stand against using the R-word, "retard" or "retarded," by taking the pledge at http://www.r-word.org/.

The campaign, which has become one of the largest in the country for a single region, is being held on the national Spread the Word to End the Word day of awareness on March 2.

Take the pledge:http://www.r-word.org/.
