A congratulations is in order!
We are thrilled to announce that DramaWay‘s “Spread the Word to End the Word” PSA by our SocialWorks Mississauga program has been selected as one of three finalists by Special Olympics Ontario! Please continue to Spread the Word to End the Word!
There are 171,476 words in the English Language – Which words do you use to describe yourself?
May 5th was international awareness day for Spread the Word to End the Word. This campaign is meant to educate mainstream, non-intellectually disabled community members about ending the use of the R-Word (“retarded”). By spreading this message through the creative arts and word of mouth it will be extremely impactful! There are so many words we can use to uplift and support one another – this is not one of them. The campaign asks individuals to pledge to end the use of the word ‘retard (ed)’ to create more accepting attitudes and inclusive communities. Language affects attitudes and attitudes affect actions. Help us to Spread the Word to End the Word! Visit www.r-word.org for more information!
