A Tragedy in Uvalde, Texas

We are heartbroken by news of the horrific school shooting in Uvalde, Texas, and our thoughts are with the teachers, parents, and students affected by this tragedy.

In 2018, LifeChanger Brian Copes approached us with a challenge: “We need to change the way we approach violence in schools.”

In partnership with Brian and other teacher leaders across the country, National Life helped found and fund the National Coalition for Safe Schools. NCSS is a teacher-led initiative that believes the best way to create safer and healthier schools and communities is to proactively address the root causes of violence and other negative behaviors.

There is so much more work that we need to do, and we can’t do it alone. Join our coalition and contribute to the national conversation about how to prevent school violence at www.notinmyschool.com
