Spread the word, to end the word

Living East Tennessee

Students at the University of Tennessee joined in on a national campaign to elminate the “R” word. 

With participants from the UT Future Program, UT’s Best Buddies program and faculty and students from the Dept. of Special Education, #SpreadTheWordToEndTheWord, advocates for the elmination of the word “retarded,” from your vocabulary and replace it with a new “R” word: respect. 

This campaign promotes inclusivity of students and peers with intellectual disabilities, and end discrimination and exclusion of people with disabilities.
