      ABUSE: Operation Don't Laugh at Me

      Operation Don't Laugh at Me: Dedicated to Creating Safe, Caring and
      Respectful Environments for Children

      "Operation Respect is a non-profit organization working to transform
      schools, camps and organizations focused on children and youth, into more
      compassionate, safe and respectful environments. Founded by Peter Yarrow
      of the folk group Peter, Paul & Mary, the organization disseminates
      educational resources that are designed to establish a climate that
      reduces the emotional and physical cruelty some children inflict upon
      each other by behaviors such as ridicule, bullying and-in extreme
      cases-violence. It is a unique organization that provides a gateway to
      broad scale adoption of school-based character education as well as
      social and emotional learning (SEL) programs.

      Toward this end, Operation Respect developed the Don't Laugh at Me (DLAM)
      programs, one for grades 2-5, another for grades 6-8 and a third for
      summer camps and after-school programs. All of the programs utilize
      inspiring music and video along with curriculum guides based on the
      well-tested, highly regarded conflict resolution curricula developed by
      the Resolving Conflict Creatively Program (RCCP) of Educators for Social
      Responsibility (ESR)."
