Spread the Word to End the Word

Join MRI as we Spread the Word the End the Word!

Spread the Word the End the Word is a national campaign created by Special Olympics and Best Buddies. MRI is joining the campaign and spreading the word about how hurtful the R-word (retard or retarded) can be to individuals with disabilities.

On Wednesday, March 7 from 11:00 am – 2:00 pm, MRI will set up booths at MRI’s main campus (2121 Hubbard Ave.), Eisenhower High School and Millikin University’s new student union. We will have easily accessible ways to pledge, giveaways and the opportunity to hear first hand accounts about how the R-word affects from individuals with disabilities. Join us at any location to help spread the word!

Can’t make it out? You can pledge online too: https://www.r-word.org/r-word-pledge.aspx.
