SPEAK UP

In 4 out of 5 school shootings, at least one other person has knowledge of the attackers’ plan.

SPEAK UP empowers students with an unprecedented resource for preventing violence in their schools and communities. Students can safely and anonymously report suspected threats 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by calling 1-866-SPEAK-UP. The hotline is staffed by trained counselors who handle the threat reports according to a protocol developed in collaboration with leading experts in law enforcement and education.

Although the hotline provides the mechanism through which students can report potentially life-saving information, it is critical that students are also provided with the motivation to do so. Our comprehensive public awareness campaign works to combat destructive social norms, such as the fear of retaliation or being labeled a “snitch.” The campaign sends the powerful message that students can and should "SPEAK UP" against violence.

The SPEAK UP hotline has received over 40,000 calls since its inception, leading to the prevention of numerous acts of violence.
