Save Teen Rapp in NYC

Hey All, my friend Liz works for this great organization called Teen Rapp. They do important work in the NYC school system and their budget is once again in danger of being cut by Mayor Bloomberg. As some background info: Teen RAPP is a $3 million domestic violence prevention and anti-bullying program that reaches over 50,000 ethnically and culturally diverse students in 65 NYC middle and high schools, is the largest program of its kind in the United States. Teen RAPP saves New York City millions in potential costs related to medical treatment, hospitalization, juvenile detention, teen pregnancy, shelter placement and other social services. If you want to help keep this vital program alive, please sign the petition at the following link!
