BULLYING PREVENTION: Governor’s Summit To Begin


Governor Branstad’s second Bullying Prevention Summit will begin Monday.

The highly anticipated summit will be held at the Hy-Vee Hall.  Last year’s sold-out event attracted nearly 1,200 people.

A number of speakers are lined up to speak at the event, including Keynote Speaker Emily Bazelon.  Bazelon wrote Sticks and Stones, a book that covers bullying on a national scale.

Registration for the event has closed, but the activities from the summit will be available online.   You can watch the Bullying Summit from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. on Monday from the summit website.

    Whoever said words can’t hurt was never the pariah of a group of teen girls. From the clothes I wore to the chest I lacked, I was told daily how ‘ugly’ I was. My parents helped me see I had the power to just walk away from my bullies. And I learned that life does get a lot better. Bullying a willful, conscious desire to hurt another and put him/her under stress. Actions speak louder than words.No one deserves to feel worthless.
