I wanted to let you know about some upcoming activities related to bullying prevention later this month. Please feel free to share with your colleagues and networks.
- On October 26, 2021, at 3 pm ET, the Federal School Safety Clearinghouse is hosting an informational webinar on bullying awareness and prevention resources, tactics, and strategies to create safer school environments. This session will provide information and resources to the kindergarten through 12th grade (K-12) school community. Please see the attached flyer for more information and to register.
- On October 27-28, 2021 the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention will host an exciting event titled, Understanding and Preventing Youth Hate Crimes and Identity-based Bullying: A Virtual Symposium. This symposium will address important topics including current trends and research on identity-based bullying, cyberbullying, youth-related hate crimes, and how hate groups use social media and technology to reach, recruit, and radicalize youth. It will also provide programs and best practices from experts in the field on how schools, families, law enforcement, and communities can work together to build protective factors in youth and help youth resist and disengage from extremist hate groups.
