Spread the Word Campaign!

March 2, 2022

Spread the Word: Inclusion is a global campaign working towards inclusion for all people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. It started as Spread the Word to End the Word, a US campaign to encourage people to pledge to stop using the word “retard”, but broadened both its goals and its scope in 2019.

Current and potential Kansas Unified Champion Schools can sign-up for a free Spread the Word Campaign Kit. Each kit contains all of the supplies you will need to host a Spread the Word Day Campaign at your school. Complete the form by January 14 to be guaranteed a kit.

Spread the word video to end use of the “r”word video created by Lawrence High School IPS.
