Gonzaga University Pledges to End the R-Word
Gonzaga Specialized Recreation Program (GUSR) pairs student-volunteers alongside local adults with developmental disabilities for Special Olympics and two semester plays. This week, we are hosting Disabilities Awareness Week on campus, where we focus on our ABILITIES and pledge to end the use of the R-Word as a derogatory term. We are tabling outside our student center every day, selling $3 R-Word shirts, collecting pledges on our Wall and papers, and sharing our cause with our peers. We invite our friends and family to our Open House during GUSR on Tuesday night, to see what we're all about. It is sure to be a night of fun, laughter, and memories! Also, we made a public service announcement to show our universal support so check us out!
