Statement by Terry Nealon, CEO

Learning Without Tears

We at Learning Without Tears stand with the families of Uvalde, Texas, and are deeply saddened by the horrible event on May 24th at Robb Elementary School and the loss of so many beautiful lives. We join with people across the United States and around the world in shock, profound grief and pursuit of an open dialogue so this will never happen again.

Learning Without Tears works tirelessly to ensure access to education for young children. The most fundamental element of learning is that it happens in a safe place, free from violence and fear. We yearn for a time when all children will have a safe place to learn and grow and be able to pursue their hopes and dreams. The students and families, faculty and staff, and everyone affected by the horrific attack at Robb Elementary School are in our thoughts and prayers. 

There are resources available for anyone struggling to understand, grapple with, or teach about tragedies such as this. Learning Without Tears is proud to support these organizations through donation so that they can support all of us in times of crisis:

•    National Child Traumatic Stress Network
•    Learning for Justice
