The following petition is to raise awareness about the collective worry that New York City students, parents, and families face everyday about the possibility of violence in schools, which seems especially true in light of the horrific Newtown tragedy that happened so close to home.
The method of ending violence is by urging our local and state legislatures to implement the Big Brother Big Sister Program in our schools. This program has been proven to decrease the rate of violence within our schools along with providing a mentoring program for our youth.
We, the undersigned, believe that another tragedy should not happen. We, the undersigned, seek to end all violence in our schools.

Listening to solutions our students want for issues that face them is incredibly important. Implementing mentoring programs as a way to curb violence in schools is an effective, and important way to lend support to our students who need it the most.
Amazing job putting this together. And keep going!
As the saying goes, you have to be the change you want to see in the world. Keep up the great work!
Good work, and I believe that mentoring programs are a great step to begin to curtail violence within and around our schools.
