We are asking everyone of all ages to come out and support our movement. We will be holding an assembly/pledge to stop online bullying.

  • Refreshments will be served.
  • sign-ups for all events that will end this issue will also be available.

Should Cyber bullying be a criminal offense ?

Yes , cyber-bullying should be a criminal offense. I say this because how many suicide cases are we going to get before we start realizing this type of behavior that goes on online has to be stopped rather than if it resorts in a fine or jail time. Many people have to face this offense everyday and its ruining our society and killing our generation.
