School should be a place where children are free from abuse and traumatic practices, yet that is not always the case. Seclusion and restraint involve isolating or physically restraining students, often those with disabilities. During the summer break ⛱️, when school may be out of sight, it's the perfect time to shed light on this critical issue and put an end to these practices.

We invite you to join us in supporting the Keeping All Students Safe Act (KASSA). KASSA would ban the use of seclusion and stop the practice of restraint in most cases, but Congress must pass this bill for that to happen!

Imagine a world where all children, regardless of ability, can thrive in a nurturing educational environment that respects their dignity and autonomy. By signing our petition, you're sending a powerful message to Congress that every child deserves to be treated with kindness, compassion, and understanding.

Sign our petition 📝to support KASSA! https://pulse.ly/33ud7oor6s
