“In honor of Ian, I promise never to try, take or abuse drugs and to encourage others to do the same”
“I am now positive that I will never do drugs for any reason,” said Robbie, a seventh grader at Roton Middle School.

The Courage to Speak Foundation held it’s 10th Annual Drug Free Family Night Tuesday night, encouraging Norwalk students & families to stay drug free together.

“It’s so important that parents really get the message to their children. Talk to them. The number one key as a parent to a child is to talk to them about drugs. The parents are here tonight to listen to their child and to support them,” said Ginger Katz, CEO and Founder of the Courage to Speak Foundation and author of Sunny’s Story.
Albert, a fourth grader at Brookside Elementary School said, “I learned that drugs are not only bad for your health, but it could make you do things you don’t want to do.”

Student written letters & posters lined tables & the walls of West Rocks Middle School all with one common theme – to say no to drugs.
