Bullying And Prevention
Monday, August 31
There have always been bullies intimidating people of all ages. But the digital age has added new platforms for bullying and often the victims see no way out other than to choose suicide. That is the choice college freshman Tyler Clementi made and now his mother is working to educate people around the country about the problem. In Charlotte for events surrounding the Stand Up, Sing Out Concert to STOP Bullying, Jane Clementi joins us.
"Stand Up. Sing Out. A Concert to Stop Bullying" is on Sept. 3 at 7:30 p.m. at the Halton Theatre at CPCC with guest start Ann Hampton Calloway. Tickets and more information here.
