Special Olympics is an organization that prides itself on acceptance and inclusion. On March 1, 2017 Special Olympics Canada and provinces and territories across the country will be aiming to spread awareness about the harmful effects of the R-Word (retard).
Respectful and inclusive language is essential to the Special Olympics movement for the dignity and humanity of people with intellectual disabilities.
Join us on March 1, 2017 to help eliminate the use of the R-word in every day conversation. Make a stand in your community by using #NoGoodWay, #Rword or #Respect to spread the message of inclusion and help us promote acceptance and respect and take the pledge on www.motionball.com/nogooway.
