October is National Bullying Prevention Month, a month-long awareness campaign to help inspire more kindness in the classroom and online, as well as to highlight the importance of creating a more positive school climate. As founder and co-chair of the Congressional Civility and Respect Caucus, U.S. Congresswoman Joyce Beatty (OH-03) issued the following statement in observance of National Bullying Prevention Month:

“As a grandmother to two school-aged children, I know first-hand how important it is to have a school environment that is safe and free of bullying and name-calling. The school and internet are no longer safe places for our children but are instead a place of ugly bullying and harassment. We need to stop bullying in its tracks and all of us can take a part in doing so. I strongly encourage all parents, teachers, school faculty and staff, students, and community leaders to unite together to create a world where diversity and inclusion is not only tolerated but celebrated.”
