Stop Hurting Kids is a National Campaign to End Restraint and Seclusion Abuse in Schools
COPAA has teamed up with other advocacy, disability, social justice and mental health organizations to launch Stop Hurting Kids, the national campaign to end restraint and seclusion abuse in schools. The campaign kicked off Thursday, May 30, in Washington, D.C., with a special film screening.
Stop Hurting Kids seeks to spark a public dialogue about the dangers of restraint and seclusion practices, and gain support for the adoption of practices and policies that maintain a learning environment free from the threat of these abuses. The campaign promotes resources for safe and effective alternatives, and calls upon parents, educators, policy makers and advocates to take action.
The campaign features Restraint and Seclusion: Hear Our Stories, the latest documentary from filmmaker Dan Habib (Including Samual, Who Cares About Kelsey?).
