Erroneous report – D.A.R.E. to receive portion of proceeds from manufacturer of shirts shown worn by “El Chapo”

Posted on January 29, 2016 by in News

Inglewood, CA
January 28, 2016

An article published by Olivia Niland promulgates false information claiming D.A.R.E. will receive a portion of proceeds  from sales of shirts worn by Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzman in a RollingStone article written by Sean Penn.  Had Niland checked with D.A.R.E. she would have found the information she put forth to be untrue.

The manufacturer of the shirts, Barabas, is to be issued a cease and desist order regarding their claims relative to D.A.R.E.’s receipt of monies and their unauthorized use of the D.A.R.E. logo.

The claim D.A.R.E. is anyway associated with the manufacturer of the clothing or will receive proceeds from the sale of the shirts is not true. The facts of the matter and actions include:

1. The contention that D.A.R.E. is to receive a portion of the proceeds of sales of Barabas merchandise is not true.

2. The author of the report, Oliva Niland, did not contact D.A.R.E. regarding the content of her article.

3. D.A.R.E. has had no interaction with Tatiana Kivachook or any representative of Barabas.

4. Any offer to profit in the proceeds of Barabas sales as described would have been rejected.

5. Barabas’ use of the D.A.R.E. logo on their website was without authorization.

6. The matter has been referred to D.A.R.E.’s legal counsel for immediate issuance of an order to cease and desist.

D.A.R.E.

Facing unparalleled drug abuse among our youth in the 1970’s and early 1980’s, visionary Los Angeles Police Chief Daryl Gates and the Los Angeles Unified School District in 1983 launched an unprecedented and innovative substance abuse prevention education program – Drug Abuse Resistance Education. With each passing year, D.A.R.E.’s success was seen in classrooms and homes leading to rapid growth and expansion.
