Barrington Kicks Off No Name Calling Week with “Words Matter” Messaging

In honor of the 18th annual No Name-Calling Week  held January 18th – 22nd, 2021, four Barrington organizations are partnering with the Barrington 220 School District on a community-wide campaign to promote the important message that WORDS MATTER. Follow along on social media this week as BStrong Together, the Barrington Area Library, Courageous Conversations and Be the Change Barrington share insights and resources to help us weigh our words before they’re spoken and choose words that bring healing, not harm to our world.

BStrong Together is sharing Family Activities for each day of this week to reinforce the power and impact of the words we choose. These activities are designed to encourage thought, discussion, action and an awareness of the impact of our words to harm, to heal and to change the world.
