Parents Against Bullying VA wants to spread the "No Bully Zone" message across the Commonwealth of Virginia! A specialty license plate would reinforce our message to drivers and people everywhere to be kind, compassionate and make Virginia a #NoBullyZone.
You have seen the heartbreaking headlines about the effects of bullying. Suicides, depression, assault and murder mark the toll bullying is taking on our children.
It hit home for me when my daughter was brutally attacked for miles on a school bus and teased so badly she no longer wanted to live. It became my mission as a parent to prevent this from happening to anyone else’s child when I created the non-profit organization Parents Against Bullying.
In just four years, PAB has begun to reverse the bullying phenomena in Virginia. We have educated hundreds of kids about the perils of bullying, and encouraged them to embrace acceptance and individuality through events like our annual 1,000 Youth March, bi-weekly Girl Talk and Gent Talk, and the Stand Your Ground for Peace Youth Step Show. We are also sought after by many southeastern Virginia school districts to train teachers, counselors and school staff on how to identify signs of bullying and take action to properly end it.
Our efforts have been featured on CNN and Virginia television and newspaper outlets. Additionally, First Lady Michelle Obama recognized our efforts, thanking us for “finding ways to create a better tomorrow.”
In order to continue our mission, we rely on the generosity of individuals and businesses for support. Without the assistance of community-minded individuals just like you, we would not be able to eradicate bullying. Creating a "No Bully Zone" license plate will allow us to spread the message everywhere you drive, and raise funds to support our efforts to end the bullying epidemic. We have been able to spark the tide of change, and your support will help us make our nation a #NoBullyZone. Visit www.pabVA.com for more information.
