Anti-Bullying Expert Teams Up with Facebook

Wendy Craig and the Promoting Relationships and Eliminating Violence Network (PREVNet) joined forces with Facebook and a number of other agencies to launch the Be Bold: Stop Bullying Campaign during Bullying Awareness Week in fall of 2012.

The campaign promoted an interactive social media pledge app that enabled teens, parents and educators to make a personal commitment to help stop bullying. Using the app, teens could share their pledge and stories with friends and family, recruit others to join them in this commitment and start their own school-based bullying prevention groups on Facebook.
