Michigan Anti-Bullying sign now

For the past eleven years, legislators in Michigan have attempted to pass anti-bullying legislation in order to protect all children from bullying in schools. Now, eleven years later, Michigan is one of the last five states in the U.S. that has failed to pass any anti-bullying laws.

According to the CDC (as cited by the National Institute of Mental Health), suicide was the third leading cause of death among young people aged 10 - 24 in 2007. As of 2010 there were nine confirmed suicides resulting from bullying in the state of Michigan. Despite recent suicides in 2010, legislation aimed at combating school bullying died on the Senate floor.

Its time to protect all children in Michigan. Its time for our elected officials to understand and recognize that bullying affects all children. Bullying does not just effect the victim, it also affects the bully and all bystanders. Please support and protect our children by supporting anti-bullying legislation -legislation that names the groups of students most likely to be bullied. Dont let Michigan be the only state to have failed to pass life saving anti-bullying legislation.

    My son was bullied earlier this year at school, and neither the teacher nor the principal really took a stand against this. Michigan needs real, concrete laws that keep all children safe at school.
