Speak Out: Stop the Violence, Anti-bullying Rally
Event Date: September 6th, 2014
Bullying is a dangerous and frightening reality. With the advent of cyber bullying, victims deal with a constant barrage of hate, and have little hope of retreat. There are many children in our greater Dayton area who deal with this issue on a daily basis; we need to talk about this with our children, whether they are the bully or the bullied. We need to give them support and education and tools in order to deal with their frustration and anger and subsequent behaviors.
On September 6th, FLOC, in collaboration with New Beginnings, is going to host its first Anti-Bullying Rally, located at McIntosh Park. From 12:00 pm-7:00 pm we will have testimonials, inspirational and informational speakers available to speak to this topic. We will also have all kinds of food and music, with an emphasis on the positive ways in which our community can gather in encouraging our children to respect one another.
We need at least one hundred volunteers for this event. Please, if you are available, and would like to be involved in this very important mission, contact us or email Beth Mann at firstname.lastname@example.org – someone will be directly in touch. We’re also in need of sponsors and donations. If you are able to offer any kind of assistance, know that you will be making a difference. Thank you.
