THANK YOU for your past support! It means a lot, and it shows that we are not alone in our belief that student data should not be released to military recruiters without first seeking consent for such a release. Our kids deserve better than the status quo!
There are a couple of legislative actions that we are currently supporting. Could you take a minute or two to look over the Student Privacy Protection Act and the Youth PROMISE Act? I think you’ll agree that they would be great steps forward for our young people! Please consider taking that extra step by registering your support for them here: http://www.popvox.com/orgs/srkcampaign. Simply click the three SUPPORT buttons towards the upper right hand side of the page. Your representative WILL be notified of the bills you support in this manner.
In a nutshell, the Student Privacy Protection Act would help ensure that the privacy rights of our kids and families are upheld by ensuring that schools obtain parental permission before releasing private student data to military recruiters.
The YOUTH Promise Act focusses on the problems of violence that too many of our kids face. We should foster and promote peaceful pathways for our kids to follow as they transition from childhood to adulthood. Too often our young people become ensnared in a culture of violence with few opportunities provided to help them reach their potential. The Youth PROMISE Act would help provide such pathways to at-risk youth on a consistent and ongoing basis. We’ve recently signed on in support of this bill.
Thank you for all you do,
Stop Recruiting Kids
