Peter Yarrow Shares Vision With Operation Respect

  |   Comments   |   Bookmark and Share
Peter Yarrow, of Peter, Paul & Mary fame, shared his vision for safe school environments, as well as his songs, at an event hosted by the Womens League of Sutton Place Synagogue. Dr. Charlotte K. Frank, who co-founded the organization Operation Respect with Yarrow, introduced him.

Operation Respect is a non-profit organization that aims to assure each child and youth a respectful, safe and compassionate climate of learning where their academic, social and emotional development can take place free of bullying, ridicule and violence. 

To that end, it provides educational resources on respect and conflict resolution through a free classroom-based program Dont Laugh at Me, which has been used in over 20,000 schools worldwide.
