R-word ban campaign to start this week

Spread the Word to End the Word, a campaign to stop the use of the word “retard” or “retarded” in a derogatory way, is coming to Baylor’s campus. This Wednesday, there will be a table where you can sign a banner to pledge your rejection of the R-word from 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. at the Bill Daniel Student Center. This year’s shirts will be available for $10 and last year’s for $5 ($12 for both). For additional information, visit www.r-word.org.
