Local School Campaigns to End the Word


BREWER - At Brewer High School today, hundreds of students came together to stop the use of the "r-word" from being used when describing someone with intellectual disabilities.
In the front of a crowded lunch room, Brewer High School students and faculty are banning together to spread the word to end the word.
The project is part of a national campaign, to eliminate the use of the word from everyday speech. Each student signs a pledge, and receives a pin or bracelet to show their support.
But for the students involved, the message is more than that.
Brewer high school is now one of 25 schools in the pine tree state to climb aboard the campaign, and they hope to be a model for many more.
