Spread the Word to End the Word is an inclusive movement working to end discrimination and exclusive speech. The movement was founded in 2009 to specifically address the word “retard(ed)” by acknowledging its harmful nature and ramifications in culture. This movement partners with Special Olympics and Best Buddies along with other advocacy programs to change the language associated with disabilities. In 2019, this movement changed to Spread the Word to expand the focus to creating a new inclusive reality for people living with mental and physical disabilities.
