Today's Zero Tolerance policies don't help. When a child tries to stand up for himself or herself, they are punished for fighting just the same as they bully.

It's time for parents of bullied children to involve law enforcement if nothing is done when the bullied child approaches the school district.

As Director of the Billtown Film Festival, I am pleased that we were able to present CAPPA's important message about bullying in conjunction with the screening of feature film documentary, BULLY (2012) at the CAC on April 29, 2013.

Our goal is to inform, inspire, and illuminate through independent film in Williamsport Pa. CAPPA's Enough is Enough was well received by the audience.

( Bullying Today In Our Society Has Become A Major Problem. Myself / Family Have Been Bullied, Harassed, Humiliated And Threatened For Over A Year. Not What WE Call Fun. Others Choose Not To Become Involved As WE Go Through The Motions In Our Community. And Again Others Just Look The Other Way Or Hide Fearing The Bullies. No Matter Who They Are You Cannot Stop Yourself From Standing Up For Yourself And YOU Are Almost Guaranteed To Hear Someone Make Fun Of You For Even Just Standing Up For Yourself. Others May Not Even Support The Idea Of YOU Standing Up For Yourself. A Very Sad NO Unity In This Community.
