National Hazing Prevention Week provides an opportunity for individuals, organizations, campuses and communities across North America to raise awareness about hazing and to promote hazing prevention.
NHPW is organized by HazingPrevention.Org, whose mission is to empower people to prevent hazing. NHPW activities run the gamut, from brown-bag lunch discussions about books or movies on hazing, to fundraising events, contests, training sessions for organizational and team leaders – you name it. Whether it’s a single event or a week’s worth or more, the ultimate goal is to prevent hazing from happening in the first place. Through strong educational efforts, diligent policy reinforcement, and comprehensive and ongoing community efforts, we can accomplish that goal.
