We are proud to announce our 2020 charity partner – David’s Legacy Foundation.
Listen to Your Mother has worked with a different San Antonio charity each year. We love being a part of the fabric of our community and bringing stories of motherhood to the stage. We also love being able to give back to our community and we’re excited to work with David’s Legacy Foundation this year.
About David’s Legacy Foundation
David’s Legacy Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to eliminating cyber and other bullying of children and teens, through education, legislation and legal action. The organization is named for David Molak, who took his life at 16 after having been harassed and bullied via text messages and social media. “Mother’s Day is especially hard on those whose have lost children,” said David’s mom and DLF founder, Maurine Molak. “It feels appropriate to partner with a show that celebrates all aspects of motherhood through storytelling.”
What is “David’s Law?”
“David’s Law” or SB 179 passed in the 85th legislative session, was signed by Governor Greg Abbott on June 9, 2017, and went into effect Sept 1, 2017. “David’s Law” requires school districts to include cyberbullying in their district bullying policies and notify a child’s parents if he or she is a victim or alleged aggressor of bullying. The law allows schools to combat and prevent cyberbullying by empowering them to investigate and address off-campus cyber-assisted bullying if it materially affects the school environment. It allows for schools to collaborate with law enforcement when serious or life-threatening cyberbullying situations arise.
“David’s Law” gives parents and courts new tools to protect cyberbullying victims and strengthens options for schools and prosecutors in dealing with some of the most egregious forms of cyberbullying, such as suicide baiting. In recognition of bullying as a mental health issue, “David’s Law” also encourages schools to invest in counseling and rehabilitation services for both victims and aggressors of bullying.
