Stop School Violence


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. We, the undersigned, believe that another tragedy should not happen.


School violence ranges from bullying, harassment to school shootings. 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.


SCHOOLS SHOULD BE A SECOND HOME FOR ALL


We, the undersigned, seek to end all violence in our schools.
