PCC and PHS JAG-K sponsor Jana's Campaign in Pratt

25 January 2016

Pratt Community College and the Pratt High School JAG program are working together to bring domestic violence awareness and education to our community. The high school JAG program along with PCC are sponsoring this event that will bring Dr. Christie Brungardt and Dr. Curt Brungardt from an organization called Jana’s Campaign to speak with students across Pratt about gender and domestic violence.

Jana’s Campaign is a national group of activists, advocates, and volunteers that are committed to sharing the story of Jana Mackey, a victim of domestic violence. Her parents, Christie Brungardt and Curt Brungardt, are Kansas natives who teach at Fort Hays State University, founded Jana’s Campaign and are active speakers to students and communities to help spread their story, educate, and give prevention resources on gender and relationship violence.

On Feb. 17 the Brungardt’s will be spreading Jana’s Campaign across 3 Pratt schools speaking at Liberty Middle School, Pratt High School, and Pratt Community College. The Pratt High School JAG program began planning to bring Jana’s Campaign to Pratt last year.

“Domestic violence is something that can be a hard topic to talk about. Curt and Christie explain it on a level that doesn't sugar coat it but makes it more urgent for students to realize that domestic violence is not ok and that there are people and places that are there to help,” said Carrie Goodheart, PHS JAG-K Specialist.

The assembly’s at Liberty Middle School and Pratt High School are for students only. Pratt Community College will be hosting the Brungardt’s from 4-5 p.m. on Feb 17 in Carpenter Auditorium which is open to students and the community.
