In Pride Month 2012, PFLAG NYC Teams with Johnson & Johnson to Fight Bullying in Schools

PFLAG NYC has teamed with the Johnson & Johnson Family of Consumer Companies, Walgreens, and Duane Reade in Care with Pride™, an innovative partnership to support PFLAG’s efforts to help end bullying of all youth through the Safe Schools Program. As half of all children are bullied at some point in their school years, including 90% of LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) youth, Care with Pride™ will address these staggering statistics through national media, regional events and digital resources that raise awareness and promote the Safe Schools Action Pack.

PFLAG Mom Betty Degeneres is speaking out about the Care with Pride™ program and PFLAG’s work to help make schools safe for all:


The Safe Schools Action Pack, a booklet containing PFLAG’S “Top Ten Ways to Help Make Schools Safer For All Students,” also contains $65 in coupons and rebates from 20 brands within the Johnson & Johnson Family of Companies brands. One dollar for each coupon and rebate redeemed at local Walgreens and Duane Reade stores will support the Safe Schools Program of PFLAG NYC and PFLAG’s “Cultivating Respect: Safe Schools for All” initiative.

Johnson & Johnson, Walgreens, and Duane Reade are all partnering with PFLAG NYC to participate in Pride Festivities in New York City. Volunteers from the three companies will join PFLAG NYC in the Pride March on June 24. PFLAG NYC will be spreading the word about its Safe Schools Program and handing out information on making schools safe during the Pride March.

Through PFLAG National, Care with Pride™ will be highly visible at Pride festivities across the country and will highlight the work hundreds of PFLAG chapters are doing in communities to expand the circle of support to make schools safe for all children.
