The numbers of youth committing suicide due to bullying have reached epidemic proportions. This prompted DBAB Creator, Connie St. John, to develop an innovative approach to end bullying using entertainment. DBAB is a social responsibility program of No Weapon Productions, an entertainment company that specializes in "change your life entertainment(TM)," in conjunction with our partner NexxtOne Academy (N1A), a nonprofit organization whose mission is to develop youth through science, technology, engineering, arts, athletics, and math (STEAAM) programs.
"We Don't Do That Here!" is a 30-minute musical produced and presented by high school students to middle schools around the country. It empowers "targets," redirects "culprits," (those engaging in bully behavior) and turns onlookers into "interveners." NexxtOne Academy (N1A) and No Weapon Productions have partnered to bring "We Don't Do That Here!" to every middle school in the country.
21 Under 21 is a concert/fashion show featuring and produced by 21 youth all under the age of 21. This powerful event, which benefits the DBAB Project, inspires youth and young adults worldwide - as it showcases the incredible talent of youth and young adults who were previously bullied.
No Weapon Productions presented "We Don't Do That Here!" at the illustrious Duke Ellington School of the Arts in Washington, D.C. during Bully Prevention Month, October 2022.
One of our amazing partner schools - L.A. County High School for the Arts (LACHSA) - created this teaser video of "We Don't Do That Here!"
The first 21 Under 21 event was held virtually in 2020 - live on YouTube. Check out this amazing talent!
