Posted: Updated:
GRIMES (KWWL) -

Special Olympics Iowa will be at the Iowa State Capitol Tuesday as part of a national campaign to end the "R-word".

Spread the Word to End the Word will be in the first floor rotunda and is aimed to make a stand against using the "R-word" and help create acceptance and inclusion for all people.

They say the word furthers stereotypes and is hurtful to millions of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities as well as those who love them.
