Radnor High School's Best Buddies Club is working to "Spread the Word to End the Word". The campaign is aimed at getting people to stop using the R-word.
The club showed the high school student body a public service announcement Wednesday, titled "Not Acceptable" and then asked students to sign a pledge not to use the word.
Best Buddies is an international organization whose mission is to enhance the lives of people with intellectual disabilities by providing opportunities for one-to-one friendships.
During a similar presentation last year, 850 students signed the pledge.
No word yet on how many students signed the pledge after Wednesday's presentation.
