Why Your Support Is Critical
1) 757,000, 000 police reported incidences of school violence in 2016 (source CDC).
2) 34% of students reported being in fights, being bullied, injured by a weapon or carrying a weapon to school (source CDC).
3) There are no current federal or state initiatives focused on a proactive approach to reducing school violence. Budgets are spent on responding to student violence, with less than 10% funding earmarked for preventing it (source NBES).
It's Time to Change The Facts
Supporting NoSchoolViolence.org is easy. You and your friends and family can
1) become involved in our SOS (Secure Our Schools) program or
2) be contributors to our crowdfunding initiatives or fund-raising events.
What Your Support Does
Your support will help start a new era in American education, placing a new emphasis on the proactive reduction of school violence.
Your support helps us enhance our award winning The Lantern®, an app that parents, educators, health professionals, researchers and concerned citizens can load onto their computers, tablets or phones and learn how certain student behaviors lead to various kinds of violence. To further develop The Lantern® we need to hire researchers, data scientists, a marketing/PR team, volunteer/alliance coordinators, a blog staff, policy advocates, and an administrative staff.
