Gov. Terry Branstad is making bullying prevention a priority again this fall.
The second annual Bullying Prevention Summit will be held November 4th.
Last year’s sold-out inaugural summit drew in more than 1,000 students and adults. This year’s theme is “Mission Possible: Stepping Up the Response.”
The summit will include sessions on how both students and adults can make a difference, what makes for good legal policy and what support schools need to deal with bullying
“Talk to them about leadership and making good decisions and about schools and about citizenship and about being compassionate with all kids in their schools,” says Jack Lashier, Director of the Iowa Hall of Pride.
The summit will be held at Hy-Vee Hall in downtown Des Moines. Registration opens Monday, August 26th.
