Bullying Initiative

Hold a bullying fair

Invite stakeholders (politicians, interested celebrities, school officials, police officers) to attend a bullying event where aspects of bullying are highlighted. When possible, have the event covered by the media, as we see in the embedded video clip.

A bullying fair could be planned that involves community organizations with common interests related to ending violence generally, and bullying, specifically.  Such a fair could be planned in connection with state and national bullying events.
