Rochester has become one of the largest regions in the country to participate in the national "Spread the Word to End the Word" day. It's all about the so-called "r word:" "retard" or "retarded."
The Golisano Foundation has helped launch the local effort, and we talk to various people about the impact of using a word that has become so hurtful to so many. Our guests:
- Ann Costello, director of the Golisano Foundation
- Cori Piels, inclusion specialist at Rochester AmeriCorps
- Steve Salluzzo, president of Bishop Kearney High School
