CARROLLTON, GA — Oprah Winfrey has recently made it her personal goal to make a difference and put a stop to people texting and driving. She wants to include Atlanta college students in the “No Phone Zone” campaign, and is hosting a rally at Georgia Tech on April 30.
During her 12 p.m. on-air show she well show live video feed of the students who attend the rally and show their commitment for the cause. Before the airing there will be an informational forum held with celebrity Holy Robinson Pete as the on-site host. Along with educating the participants about the statistics behind distracted driving, speakers will also be there to give testimonials on how they have been personally affected by distracted drivers.
Students are encouraged to come out in their school gear, and sign the pledge to end distracted driving. The event is open to the public and will begin around 10 a.m.
