Let's stand up as a community on May 30th to show that we are united in the fight to end bullying!
The goal of the event is to educate on the continued issue of bullying within our schools and community and provide resources that exist to battle this problem. As you read this, students in our country are currently being bullied and assaulted while others are contemplating suicide as a way out of the problem. Its time that we stand up and address this by providing options and showing solutions. Doing so will be achieved in the following ways. Through the screening of informative and inspiring award winning films. Through the screening of student films from Jamestown High School, through the educational words of guest speakers such as those who have lived through bullying locally and through the presentations of organizations such as the Western New York Anti-Violence Project that has already made a difference and can do the same in our own community. Infinity performing arts will be providing entertainment at the event along with Guys and Dolls Dance Studio! Many businesses and organizations have answered the call to "STAND UP AGAINST BULLYING" by agreeing to be present for this event where they will be selling crafts, gifts, refreshments or distributing information on their products or services. This is an all ages event! The event runs from noon to 9pm. A full schedule of activities and more information can be found at jamestownpride.com. As a community, it's important that we all stand up together to show that we are united in the fight to end bullying.
