PFLAG Nashville fights bullying in schools
NASHVILLE — PFLAG Nashville is set to end the bullying of all youth. With help from the Johnson & Johnson Family of Consumer Companies and Walgreens, PFLAG’s Care With Pride is a strategic initiative to support the critically important efforts to help end bullying of all youth.
As half of all children are bullied at some point in their school years, including 90% of GLBT youth, Care With Pride will address these numbers through national media, regional events, and digital resources that raise awareness and promote the Safe Schools Action Pack.
The Safe Schools Action Pack is a booklet containing PFLAG’s “Top Ten Ways to Help Make Schools Safer for All Students.” It also contains $65.00 in coupons and rebates from twenty brands within the Johnson & Johnson Family. One dollar from each coupon and rebate redeemed at local Walgreens will support PFLAG’s “Cultivating Respect: Safe Schools for All” initiative.
“As a corporation at that is committed to the health and care for all people, the Johnson & Johnson Family of Consumer Companies is focused on continuing to uphold diversity and equality through a range of efforts externally as well as within our own organization,” says Scott Creighton, Global Vice-President of the company’s Marketing Excellence Group. “By partnering with PFLAG, we are helping to further their very important work to end bullying and create safer schools for all children.”
Kathy Halbrooks, President of PFLAG Nashville, is excited about the partnership with PFLAG National and the Johnson & Johnson Family. “Bring[ing] public awareness to bullying in our schools [does] something positive to make sure that every student can have the best possible educational experience in a peaceful and safe environment,” she says.
