The Fund for Civility, Respect and Understanding presents the second-annual PSA showcase to end bullying!
Join students, parents, teachers and community members for a showcase and awards ceremony for student produced 30 second public service announcements themed “BYSTANDER EMPOWERMENT!” The End of Bullying Task Force of the Fund for Civility, Respect and Understanding along with the Pima County Attorney’s Office and Cox Communications invite the community to attend this powerful event as we watch solutions to bullying through students video art.
Admission is free for all and we will have free popcorn, water and T-shirts for the first 300 youth. Lastly, thanks to Cox Communications, we will have a raffle for an iPad for one lucky audience member (you must be present to win.)
Present will be 12 year old Levi Fallavollita, local author of “The Good, the Bad and the Bullies” published in 2012. I just heard Levi and his mother Chantel (who was bullied as a child for a physical disability) speak at 2nd Annual Youth & Peace conference at Doolen Middle School on March 16. Levi is on a mission to do what he can to stop bullies, as he was a victim in elementary school.
Our community needs to have a zero tolerance attitude to bullying of children and each other.
