Abraham Lincoln once said, “Bullying is an age-old problem and challenges us to be heroes and friends”.
Due to the overwhelming responses generated from our October 7 “Bully” event, we are offering an encore showing! Excerpts from the character-driven documentary “Bully” follow five youth and their families over the course of a school year, offering insights into different facets of America’s bullying crisis. Glimpses into the home and school settings of these kids creates an inspiring & powerful film that is a must see for every teenager, parent, educator, and adult who interact with children. Also included in this special 54 minute edited version is footage from Anderson Cooper’s CNN documentary “The Bully Effect” which shows the remarkable transformations that occurred in the lives of those featured in “Bully”. This film is rated PG-13 and is suggested for students 12 and older.
This special version of “Bully” is being presented through a collaborative effort between the Oconomowoc Parent Education Network (OPEN) and the Kettle Moraine Parent Resource Network (KM PRN) and Generations Against Bullying (GAB) from Greendale.
Annie Jorgensen, Miss High School America, will also speak about “The Power of a Positive Teen” after the film. Her presentation is part of the pageant’s “Crown C.A.R.E.S (Creating a Respectful Environment in Schools) platform. Annie attends Homestead High School in Mequon.
It is our common goal to change the learning, home, community, and social media environments of our youth to ones that are more caring, safe, and respectful by creating more understanding and acceptance of others.
