Spread the Word to End the Word 3.05.14

What? Campaign to spread awareness to stop using the R-word. The preferred and updated terminology is intellectual disability.

Why? The R-word is a derogatory, exclusive and offensive term. Not using the word creates a community of accepting attitudes.

Person First Language Put the person before their disability. A person might have a disability but that doesn’t define who they are.

Examples: Julie has autism vs. Julie is autistic. Aaron has a disability vs. Disabled Aaron

Get Involved 1. Pledge. 2. Share your story. 3. Hold an event. 4. Advocate for others.

How I Got Involved



Pledge Online R-word.org

Create A Conversation

Connect to Community Collect donations for a local organization that supports people with disabilities. Further the positive sense of community.

Showing Their Support Raffled out Tshirts so they could wear them on the actual day.

With Respect

Small Changes, Make Big Impacts

Won’t Change Overnight This campaign has been going on for a few years and there are still people who use this hurtful term. Need to continue to spread awareness.

What You Can Do Now Pledge online. Speak up for people who don’t have a voice. Get involved. Create a positive change in your community.

Year-Round Support

Language affects attitudes. Attitudes impact actions. Pledge to use respectful language.
