Ohio Moms Rock

"Environmental activists and parents have called Disney's educational program “propaganda” for a controversial industry" and successfully demanded Disney stop its tour to elementary schools and science centers.  After pressure from moms and hard work by all  on petitions and social media campaigns, Disney withdrew from the program that is sponsored by the Ohio oil and gas industry. 

"The sole intent of the collaboration between Radio Disney and the nonprofit Rocking in Ohio educational initiative was to foster kids' interest in science and technology. Having been inadvertently drawn into a debate that has no connection with this goal, Radio Disney has decided to withdraw from the few remaining installments of the program," the statement read.
