Beatty Recognizes National Bullying Prevention Month
October is National Bullying Prevention Month, a month-long awareness campaign to help inspire more kindness in the classroom and online, as well as to highlight the importance of creating a more positive school climate. As founder and co-chair of the Congressional Civility and Respect Caucus, U.S. Congresswoman Joyce Beatty (OH-03) issued the following statement in observance of National Bullying Prevention Month:
“As a grandmother to two school-aged children, I know firsthand how important it is to have a school environment that is safe and free of bullying and name-calling. We need to stop bullying in its tracks and all of us can take a part in doing so. In that spirit, I strongly encourage all parents, teachers, school faculty and staff, students, and community leaders to unite together to create an environment where everyone is welcome to share their skills and talents.”
