CWC hosts rally to end R-word
January 1, 2012
Central Wyoming College hosts a 2 p.m. rally Thursday, Nov. 8 to end the R-word on the CWC campus as well as in the community.
CWC’s Diversity Committee and Student Senate host the event in the Little Theatre to build awareness to stop and think about the use of the word “retard” or retarded.”
CWC student Seth Finley shares his experiences, describing what it feels like to millions of people with intellectual and developmental abilities to hear the demeaning word. He will offer the opportunity for participants to take the pledge to “end the word.”
There will be music and discussion as well as refreshments. Contact the Center for Student Involvement at 855-2260 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
