Organisation Description

The U.S. Alliance brings together individuals, groups, and organizations to create a unified voice calling for, and working toward, the end of all forms of physical and emotional punishment against children, especially in schools and homes. The Alliance, through education and legal means, seeks to end all social justifications and legal authorizations of corporal punishment. Achieving these goals will give children the same protection from physical violence as is already enjoyed by adults under state and federal law. The U.S. Alliance is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
