Who can forget the NFL’s massive, anti-domestic violence PR campaign after the Ray Rice nuclear meltdown? Now after Defltategate scandal, the Patriots are following suit. Team owner Robert Kraft has partnered with Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey created the”Game Changer” program. According to the press release:
The Patriots Anti-Violence Partnership” takes a multi-faceted approach to violence prevention education. The program, funded with $500,000 from the New England Patriots Charitable Foundation and $150,000 from the Attorney General’s Office, will provide training for students, faculty and coaches at 90 public high schools in Massachusetts. It also includes an innovative partnership that will pair schools with local domestic violence and sexual assault service providers to provide ongoing support to schools.
