Spread the Word: End the R-word

Spread the Word to End the Word is an ongoing campaign to raise awareness about the dehumanizing and hurtful effects of the word “retard(ed).” Join the global effort. Visit the Event Resources page on the R-word Website. Conduct an R-word campaign in your school. Learn how to respond to use of the R-word. Share the Time for Kids R-word poster toolkit with your school.



Spread the Word: Social Media

Through your personal online social networks, you can help share the message of Project UNIFY and spread dignity, acceptance and respect to your friends. Download the Social Media Resource Toolkit to learn more about activating social media in support of Special Olympics. And follow Special Olympics Project UNIFY on Facebook and Wordpress. Check out a great example of a school promoting Project UNIFY via the web from Mesa Middle School in Colorado.

Spread the Word: Videos

Special Olympics Project UNIFY and youth leaders around the country have created a collection of videos to help you share the message of acceptance and unity with students in your school.
