Join the Golisano Foundation and Special Olympics International to take the pledge to stop the hurtful use of the word 'retard(ed)'.
Please visit www.r-word.org and do your part by pledging to stop the use of the 'r-word'. Pledging takes but a minute of your time and is free to do. Invite your friends and family to do the same.
The city of Rochester is in the running to become the #1 city in the nation to end the use of the word. Mr. Tom Golisano himself will be asking for your help in both radio and television commercials in the upcoming weeks.
Working as one we can better our communities and help everyone feel welcome. Taking the pledge is a powerful first step.
