STOP THE SILENCE. HELP END THE VIOLENCE
A hero doesn't necessarily have to wear a cape and tights, maybe a hero speaks up for what's right. Maybe that hero could be you. If you see or hear something that doesn't seem right, you can submit a confidential tip to OK2SAY. OK2SAY allows anyone to confidentially report tips on criminal activities or potential harm directed at Michigan students, school employees, or schools.
Protect yourself and others by using OK2SAY. Because if you won't, who will? https://www.michigan.gov/ok2say...
