Enough is Enough

What is Enough is Enough?

Enough is Enough campain to stop campus violence.Enough is Enough is a campaign to raise awareness against societal violence. Students should be able to learn in a safe environment so this campaign started to put an end to societal violence and make our schools safe.

During April , campuses across the country will speak out, engage in dialogue, and take action to stem the tide of societal violence.

This campaign began in 2008 after the violence on the Virginia Tech campus. Administration, students, and faculty though enough was enough. Thus the campaign began. Today, we are still raising awareness and making pledges to not allow violence on our campus.

SAVE is a student-driven organization. Students learn about alternatives to violence and practice what they learn through school and community service projects. As they participate in SAVE activities, students learn crime prevention and conflict management skills and the virtues of good citizenship, civility, and nonviolence.

Shortly after the Columbine High School tragedy in 1999, Barnes & Noble Chairman Leonard Riggio met with Abraham Foxman, ADL National Director. The two wanted to find a way to work together that would help counter the destructive trend of school shootings and hate crimes. The result is “Close the Book on Hate,” which is designed to use education to help break the cycle of prejudice and hatred. The program kicked off in September 2000, and has successfully involved thousands of people around the country.
