June 12th National Call-In Day for the Keeping All Students Safe Act
from the NDSS:
Join NDSS and other national organizations today, June 12th for National Call-In Day to ask your Senators and Representative to cosponsor the Keeping All Students Safe Act (S. 2036/H.R. 1893) which aims to end the practice of using restraint and seclusion as punishment or convenience.
Restraints and seclusion have killed, injured, and traumatized students in schools across the country. The Keeping All Students Safe Act, championed by Senators Tom Harkin (D-IA) and Chris Murphy (D-CT) and Representatives George Miller (D-CA) and Gregg Harper (R-MS), promotes a shift toward preventing problematic behavior through the use of de-escalation techniques, conflict management, and evidence-based positive behavioral interventions and supports. NDSS strongly supports this legislation.
Please call your members of Congress tomorrow by clicking the TAKE ACTION button below, and ask your Senators and Represenative to cosponsor this important legislation!
For more information about the Keeping All Students Safe Act, please visit our NDSS Restraints and Seclusion in Schools webpage.
Thank you for all you do!
