COLLOQUIUM DEPOT, LTD. is a nonprofit 501c(3), that is designed to be a central point for the collection, assembling and distribution of information on violence in modern society, especially Domestic Violence (IPV), Adolescent Violence/Bullying and Gender-related Violence.
Through passing times, we have learned that the prevalence of violence among pre-adolescent and adolescent populations, is a cause of concern in schools across the country, especially when it manifests itself as bullying. We, therefore, chose to encourage youth and the larger population by making BAN ON BULLYING®, the main initiative of our not-for-profit organization.
We are dedicated to creating violence-centered dialogue in our communities by spreading the word about abuse awareness, while bringing youth and their communities together through inter-generational activities, by way of original written presentations, entertainment, and the arts.
BAN ON BULLYING®’s primary objectives, are to organize and conduct fundraising events to raise monies to fund our Anti-bullying programs for the prevention of child abuse and neglect. Our interactive approach, through our Educational Outreach program, was designed to: Reduce/eliminate violent, adolescent behavior, specifically, bullying.
Abuse is violent behavior the abuser uses to exercise power and control over the victim. There are NO age, color, racial, economic, educational, cultural, or religious boundaries prohibiting abusive occurrences. We target youth, adults and parents, as an inclusive demographic, through effective outreach and presentation of content to schools, community youth groups, churches and family-centered organizations.
We are open to collaboration that does not dilute the message or the impact of our presentational mode and are available to all people without regard to ethnicity, religion, sexual preference, gender or racial classification.
Our perspective includes a continuing effort to eliminate Violence extending to all arenas of life through education, entertainment, technology, and the arts. The reality of violence as a pervasive presence, indicates the difficulty of approaching that goal.
Therefore, our intention is one of long-term committed activity, incrementally encompassing the range of social interactions. Over time, we anticipate that as a result of our efforts and success, that both organizational growth and increased popular participation, will be facilitated by outreach and personal contact.
