Extend Bullying/Harassment Protection

0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!

The Dignity for All Students Act protects elementary and secondary grade students. Not to mention that it also only protects victims if they were bullied on their religion, sexual orientation, race, etc. My friends and I have hateful comments made to us both in person and online, sometimes it had gotten to the point where they didn't want to live! Not to mention so many other students that have this happening, but the harassers rarely have consequences since it does not fall under any of the limited topics the law protects. If the law is amended in order to protect more students, they will hopefully feel safer going to school, communicating with others, and lower the suicide/depression rate due to bullying.
