The Safe to Talk Fund is committed to decreasing bullying, violence, crime and suicide in schools through education, programs and services. One such product is a technological solution called SchoolTipline. SchoolTipline is an anonymous texting platform that allows students to submit tips of violent or dangerous behavior to administrators, without fearing retribution from peers. In connection with the Safe to Talk Fund and Friends of Safe Schools Los Angeles (FOSSLA), the LA Unified School District is slated to implement SchoolTipline to help increase safety across its schools.
According to the National Education Association, 160,000 students skip classes each day because they fear physical harm, and nearly as many of their classmates are bringing guns to school. Sumner Redstone has joined forces with The Safe to Talk Fund and SchoolTipline to aggressively decrease these numbers in the Los Angeles area. For more information on the Safe to Talk Fund at the Community Foundation of Utah, please contact Fraser Nelson at (801) 559-3005.
