SANDY HOOK, CT, USA, October 24, 2019 / -- The Jesse Lewis Choose Love Movement™ announced today that Scarlett Lewis was presented with the 2019 Global Presence Humanitarian Award by the Global Presence. Scarlett Lewis founded The Jesse Lewis Choose Love Movement, a nonprofit organization dedicated to Social and Emotional Learning, after who lost her six-year-old son in the Sandy Hook School tragedy.

On December 14th 2012, Newtown Connecticut mother Scarlett Lewis endured an unimaginable trauma - the murder of her six year old son, Jesse, along with 19 of his classmates and six faculty members at Sandy Hook Elementary. The next day Scarlett discovered something powerful. Jesse had written three words on their kitchen chalkboard,

“Norturting Helinn Love.”

Nurturing healing love, spelled phonetically by her six year old because he was in 1st grade and just learning to write. These three simple words illuminated Scarlett’s path forward. If societies around the globe could provide proactive math literacy education by qualified professionals to children, teens and adults, so too could they provide emotional literacy education.

The result of her inspiration is the Choose Love Enrichment ProgramTM, a no cost Infant, Toddler, and Pre-K through 12th grade, Lifespan, Character Development, next generation Social and Emotional Learning program that teaches educators and their students how to choose love in any circumstance and helps them become connected, resilient, and empowered individuals.
