Don't Be a Bully (PLV)
"Dork." "Pansy." "Loser." 1 in 7 students in grades K-12 is either a bully or a victim of bullying. On April 2, join Pace's Future Educators of America at a screening of BULLY, a first-hand look at what it's like to be bullied.
More than 13 million American kids will be bullied this year, making it the most common form of violence experienced by young people in the nation. BULLY, a documentary film directed by Sundance and Emmy-award winning filmmaker, Lee Hirsch, brings human scale to this startling statistic, offering an intimate, unflinching look at how bullying has touched five kids and their families.
Filmed over the course of the 2009/2010 school year, BULLY opens a window onto the pained and often endangered lives of bullied kids, revealing a problem that transcends geographic, racial, ethnic, and economic borders. It documents the responses of teachers and administrators to aggressive behaviors that defy “kids will be kids” clichés, and it captures a growing movement among parents and youths to change how bullying is handled in schools, in communities and in society as a whole.
Hear from people like Kirk and Laura Smalley, who, following the bullying-related suicide of their 11-year-old son, Ty, launched Stand for the Silent, an anti-bullying organization; 12-year-old Alex, who is punched, slapped, strangled, and harassed daily on his school bus; and 16-year-old Kelby, who came out as a lesbian and faced an outpouring of hatred from classmates, including being run down and hit by a van of boys.
Join Future Educators of America-PLV at a screening and discussion on Wednesday, April 2, from 9:15 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. in Butcher Suite as they build awareness of this issue and promote an anti-bullying atmosphere.
