Prescott-area teachers, parents, students and community members are invited to a free presentation titled, “We Can Stop Bullying Now,” at 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 3, at Granite Mountain School, 1800 Williamson Valley Road.
The high-energy presentation will be offered by Rhonda Orr, a local bullying expert and columnist and is part of Rhonda’s Stop Bullying Arizona Tour 2016-17. In her tour and work in the community, Orr is teaching students in all age groups how to become “unstuck” from being a bullying victim and instead become strong civic leaders.
“When it comes to ending bullying, we ask, ‘Why not?’ Why can’t we put a stop to it?” Orr asks.
The program, which will last about 45 minutes, is open to the entire community – anyone who wants to help change our culture starting with Prescott, Orr said.
The “Why Not?” campaign is starting with Prescott to become the most civil city in the nation and the city with the least amount of bullying. “It has to start somewhere and we have a ‘meaty’ Triangle-of-Triumph program,” she said. “However, all members of our
community need to be involved.”
