LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A company is taking a stand against the use of a common word.

Wednesday ResCare employees took a pledge to support the Spread the Word to End the Word campaign, which encourages people to stop using the word retarded. The word is used to describe developmental challenges and has taken a number of forms in language, especially among young people.

Best Buddies of Kentucky Ambassador Daniel Notleneyer spoke at the event in hopes of encouraging people to stop using the r-word.
