This Giving Tuesday, there are several ways you can support the work of the Alliance Against Seclusion and Restraint. Your contribution is more than just a donation; it helps us create safer schools for students, teachers, and staff. Your donation helps us promote a trauma-informed, neuroscience-aligned, relationship-driven approach to supporting all children. We can and must do better for our children.
Support our documentary project
Donate to support the development of a full-length documentary film. In this full-length documentary film, we plan to raise awareness about the use of restraint and seclusion in schools nationwide. We want the audience to understand the harm of using these aversive techniques. Children, teachers, and staff are traumatized and injured, and far too many children have died due to restraint and seclusion. However, there is a better way to support our students, teachers, and staff. This film highlights relationship-driven, trauma-informed, neuroscience-aligned, developmentally appropriate, individualized, biologically respectful, and collaborative ways to support all children. The solutions that will improve the educational system and student outcomes are the same solutions that will eliminate restraint and seclusion in schools. We can and must do better for our children. Preview the film on YouTube.
