Southampton Town Supervisor Jay Schneiderman recognized the Southampton High School “SAVE Promise Club” during “National Say Something” week and has proclaimed Friday March 6th as “Say Something Day” in the Town of Southampton to encourage all students to speak up to prevent gun violence.
The “National Say Something” program was started after the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre in Connecticut. It teaches students in Middle and High Schools to look for warning signs and threats, especially on social media, from individuals who may want to hurt themselves or others and to “say something” to a trusted adult for assistance.
“We have to work together as a community to prevent gun violence in our schools,” said Southampton Town Supervisor Jay Schneiderman. “I commend these young students for looking out for one another and for making their schools safer by participating in the ‘Say Something’ program.”
