“We Don’t Haze” Documentary from the Clery Center and former School Violence Law clients

The Clery Center has released a trailer preview of their newest resource for campuses – a free documentary addressing hazing on campus.

The 15-minute documentary, produced by the Clery Center, will be available in its entirety September 2015.

“We Don’t Haze” interweaves personal experiences of victims and their families to illustrate the effects of hazing and to inspire students to create safer campus communities.

Key takeaways include examples of hazing practices on campus and realistic alternative solutions that accomplish the positive goals of team building, unity, and positive group bonding.  The documentary addresses both how to recognize hazing and how to take realistic steps to prevent hazing on campus.

The Clery Center for Security On Campus (formerly Security On Campus, Inc.) is a nonprofit 501 (c)(3)  organization dedicated to safe campus communities nationwide. The organization was founded in 1987 by Connie and Howard Clery following the April, 1986 rape and murder of their 19-year-old daughter Jeanne in her Lehigh University dorm room. Her assailant, who is spending life behind bars without parole, was also a student at the school whom Jeanne did not know prior to the attack.

School Violence Law would like to applaud and thank our former clients’, the DeVercelly Family for their advocacy efforts through the Clery Center to prevent future hazing violence. Learn more about our initial results in 2009 following their son’s death.

Here’s to another school year that much safer because of their contributions

  • Our Ethic

    Our Ethic

    More than 20 years ago, Doug Fierberg was the first lawyer to exclusively represent victims of school violence nationwide. As his legal team has grown, we have always believed that giving back is essential. Thus, our lawyers – for no fee - have compelled wrongdoers to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars in compensation to non-profit organizations whose missions are to eliminate hazing, sexual assault, binge drinking, and other violence from schools.

    Fraternity Victims

    "Fierberg is a man of obvious and deep intelligence, comfortable - in the way of alpha-male litigators - with sharply correcting a fuzzy thought; with using obscenities; with speaking derisively, even contemptuously, of opponents. He is also the man I would run to as though my hair were on fire if I ever found myself in a legal battle with a fraternity, and so should you." - Caitlin Flanagan, The Atlantic
