Paula Flowe: Ban Spanking

Paula Flowe, Director
National Campaign to ban corporal punishment in U S Public Schools



Dear Supporters of Banning Corporal Punishment in U S Public Schools,
On November 21, 2008, the national organization, The Hitting Stops Here!, will be holding a national campaign, “21 To Go!,” for banning U S public school corporal punishment in the remaining 21 states. We are looking for concerned citizens in each state who would be interested in hosting a headquarters in their community.

Responsibilities include having a table set up at a local venue in your community such as a library, or Walmart type store front, and distribute free booklets, leaflets and other informational literature on the harmful effects of corporal punishment on children. We will supply the information, including an informative video that can be displayed on a laptop. We ask that you host your venue for a minimum of one hour on at least one of the following days: Friday, November 21, Saturday, November 22, Sunday, November 23

Presently, the states on board are:
New Mexico
North Carolina
Tennessee Supporting, non-paddling states and Canada:
