bully

Date/Time: Saturday, September 14, 2013 at 1:30 pm
Location: Niles Discovery Church, 255 H Street, Fremont, CA 94536 (Enter on 3rd Street)

It is estimated that over 13 million American kids will be bullied at school, online, on the bus, at home, through their cell phones, and on the streets of their towns. That makes it the most common form of violence young people in this country experience. The 2011 documentary Bully is the first feature-length documentary film to show how everyone has been affected by bullying — whether as a victim, a perpetrator, or a silent bystander.

For kids who have been or will be bullied in school, it is a day filled with more anxiety and foreboding than excitement. It is important, as the new school year begins, to review the reality of bullying and its impact, and to discuss what we can do about it.

Dr. James Morris, Superintendent of the Fremont Unified School District, will lead discussion after the film.

Free and open to the public (voluntary donations welcomed)

For more information contact: tricityperspectives.org, 510-797-0895, or sanjosepeace.org, 408-297-2299

Sponsored by Tri-City Independent Documentary Series, the San José Peace and Justice Center, and Niles Discovery Church
