About UsReDo Day is a program that is brought to schools by the Violence Free Coalition of Warren County (Ohio).
ReDo Day began in 2009 with 98 student participating from Lebanon High School. This past school year (2013-2014), ReDo was held in 13 schools, with 2,705 student participating. A total of 513 adult volunteers helped in facilitating the program. 99.37% of the student responded that they would recommend ReDo Day to other students.
ReDo is committed to creating school environments that encourage respect. We believe that respect is an action. When students participate in ReDo Day they will be asked to commit to:
- Respecting their peers
- Engaging the people around them and learning their stories
- Defending anyone they see being bullied
- Overcoming stereotypes
