Cartoon Network to Speak Up Against Bullying

Cartoon Network is kicking off Sept. 29 its annual Stop Bullying: Speak Up campaign with a video call-to-action encouraging people to speak up on behalf of kids who need help.   With a goal of attaining the combined voice of 1 million user-generated videos, the network is giving people the opportunity to say to the world, “I Speak Up.”  By proclaiming those three words into a mobile device and sharing the video at www.StopBullyingSpeakUp.com as well as their own social media platforms using the hashtag #ISpeakUp, participants are vowing to say something if they witness bullying.

 


Create a Safe and Supportive School Environment
  • Establish a culture of inclusion and respect that welcomes all students. Reward students when they show thoughtfulness and respect for peers, adults, and the school.
  • Make sure students interact safely. Monitor bullying “hot spots” in and around the building. Students may be at higher risk of bullying in settings where there is little or no adult monitoring or supervision, such as bathrooms, playgrounds, and the cafeteria.
  • Enlist the help of all school staff to keep an eye out for bullying and set the tone at school. Teachers, bus drivers, cafeteria staff, office staff, librarians, school nurses, influence students every day. Messages reach kids best when they come from many different adults who talk about and show respect and inclusion. Train school staff to prevent bullying
