The ECU chapter of Student-Council for Exceptional Children (S-CEC) held a Spread the Word to End the Word campus awareness event on March 5th in front of Dowdy Student Stores. S-CEC members, who are mostly special education majors, shared information with students and faculty about this national campaign to end the use of the “r-word,” referring to the words retard and retarded, and to raise awareness of its hurtfulness. They encouraged people to stop by, gain information, and sign the pledge poster. They handed out more than 100 Awareness ribbons and received more than 250 signatures on the poster. The event was a huge success! To learn more about Spread the Word, go to http://r-word.org/.
