Support Keeping All Students Safe from Restraint and Seclusion
Please Call Your Senators to Cosponsor S. 2020
January 24, 2012 — Senator Tom Harkin (D-IA) has introduced the Keeping All Students Safe Act (S. 2020) in response to an alarming report by the Government Accountability Office (GAO) that found hundreds of cases of alleged abuse and even deaths of children — most of them with disabilities — as a result of restraint and seclusion in schools. No federal laws regulate the use of restraint and seclusion in schools, and state laws vary widely.
That’s why we need you to call and ask your two U.S. senators to cosponsor The Keeping All Students Safe Act (S. 2020), showing they support protecting children from these harmful — even deadly — practices.
Please call today! You can find your senators’ phone numbers here or by calling the Capitol Switchboard at (202) 224-3121.
