Drug Prevention/Education and Lobbying Campaign

Dear Family:

Your help is needed with a PROJECT R.E.A.C.H INC., initiative and this is a profound question for you! If the TSA, CIA, FBI and other agencies can keep terrorist off our planes and out of our country, why not cocaine?

After reading a recent article of a young man in Allentown, PA that swallowed Crack, I thought of a campaign that came out of Pittsburg years ago to help save our children. Mr. Yuk as you know, is a trademarked graphic image, created by the Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh, and widely employed in the United States in labeling of substances that are poisonous if ingested.

 

In order to help children learn to avoid ingesting poisons, Mr. Yuk was conceived by Dr. Richard Moriarty, a pediatrician and clinical professor of pediatrics at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine who founded the Pittsburgh Poison Center and the National Poison Center Network. In Pittsburgh, the skull and crossbones previously used was not terribly helpful, because the Jolly Roger was the mascot for the local baseball team, the Pittsburgh Pirates.

 

However, we as a community must come up with a "Save our Children and Say No to Drugs" label and education campaign for our children and parents, so as to stop our children from being thrown in the river of no return.

As of today, we at PROJECT R.E.A.C.H. INC, a Re-enfranchisement Organization based in Jacksonville, Florida and founded by Richard P. Burton, Sr., in 2005 is asking that all schools, churches and homes will assimilate the Mr. Yuk Campaign, by using the same format to get our children to say "No To Drugs".

 

If you are in, let us start this campaign today, so we can end the foolish and winless War on Drugs and the creation of domestic terrorist within our communities.

 

Within the next 30 days we will be consulting with experts and others in the fields of education, prevention and parenting as it relates to drug prevention, and to devise a national blueprint and brand for teaching and lobby against drug abuse and this campaign will begin its teaching with Kindergarteners.

Our goal is to address: The oppressive nature of Racism and Slavery, cupped with limited access to education, jobs and inadequate mental/ physical health care has socially, emotionally and physically terrorized Black people.

 

Many of us suffer from PTSS (Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome: That trauma has been passed down through the ages. Unfortunately, poverty, brings its own set of social ills. This is a problem that needs to be addressed within families, churches, schools and in communities. We need to form real groups that model real problem solving and tangible outcomes. It is possible to create productive change in our communities.

 

"At no time do we condone wrongness on either side of the wall"
