Make Our Schools Safe (MOSS) was founded after the MSD tragedy where 17 students and staff were murdered. MOSS is a 501(c)(3) national non-profit organization dedicated to protecting students and teachers at school. Their mission is to empower students and staff to help create and maintain a culture of safety and vigilance in a secure school environment. The foundation collaborates with high-level security advisors to offer survival information for protection in emergencies. “We are focused on bringing these skills to schools so teachers feel confident to protect their students and themselves. Code-red training must be as intrinsic a part of schooling as fire drills.” http://makeourschoolssafe.org
