The National Assembly is Getting Serious About Bullying.

The National Assembly is Getting Serious About Bullying.

Kudos to six Federal departments (Education, Health & Human Services, Defense, Justice, Agriculture, and Interior) for the first-ever National Summit on Bullying held earlier this month.  As Jim Hmurovich of Prevent Child Abuse America quipped, “This demonstrates that Federal agencies can collaborate!”

Aside from the conference, which was a feat in itself, the agencies have established a website—www.BullyingInfo.org — as a resource on the subject.  It now contains information primarily about Federal efforts but, we were told, will begin to include information about non-governmental resources as well.

To support this watershed moment in inter-agency, cross-sector work on behalf of children in America, we at the Assembly are committing to join in the efforts and get serious about anti-bullying initiatives.  And we hope you – our members – will also join us in this important work.
