Valley Center Middle School adopted the R- Word Campaign again this year! An amazing program to spread awareness about universal RESPECT for all! Thank you VCMS for supporting this amazing program hosted by Special Olympics. To learn more https://www.r-word.org/r-word-take-action.aspx#.W-NCKy2ZNAY
Our campaign asks people to pledge to stop saying the R-word as a starting point toward creating more accepting attitudes and communities for all people. Language affects attitudes and attitudes affect actions. Pledge today to use respectful, people-first language.
Spread the Word to End the Word is a youth driven campaign. Every day there are young people, as well as family members and advocates, who are creating change in schools and communities. We need to hear those stories. For every one young person finding success in bringing about change, there are another 100 people trying to figure out how to do it themselves. Help us provide these resources for the community at-large by sharing your success stories so we can highlight them on our website and help everyone learn how they can be agents of change and create communities of inclusion and respect for all people.
