Utah lawmakers ended the 2018 general session with a resolution they hope will inspire big and small acts of kindness throughout the State. The legislature passed a resolution designating April as the ‘Month of Kindness.’ It is a way of honoring the victims of the tragedy at Marjory Stoneman Douglass High School in Florida. They hope the designation will be the catalyst for Utahn’s to perform countless acts of kindness with one another and shed light on the goodness in our communities.
While participating in the ‘Month of Kindness,’ lawmakers hope students and their parents will take time to download the SafeUT app, which is designed to give young people and adults a way to report unsafe or suspicious activity in school or in our communities. In addition, police want parents to take this opportunity to remind their student(s) that making light of or joking about threats will bring severe consequences.
Thank you to our local lawmakers who worked tirelessly during the legislative session to support public education and kindness in the communities in which we live.
