Bullying: Phoenix Arizona Stands Against Bullying with Cody Simpson & The Jonas Brothers

Stand4Change Anti-Bully Day Video

Anti-Bully | Stand Against Bullying Day with Cody Simpson

Children and teachers all over Phoenix Arizona are taking a stand against bullying.  Thousands of Phoenix kids are taking part in Stand4Change.org day, an international demonstration for an ant-bullying message.

Spearheaded by The Arizona Bullying Prevention Initiative, The Phoenix BullyProof Project and USA Martial Arts Phoenix, students are getting schools and kids on board with this timely message.  On the heels of the recent Lee Hirsch documentary film “BULLY”, the timing couldn’t be better.

Kids are seeing positive role models like Justin Bieber, Cody Simpson, the Jonas Brothers and others take a stand against bullying.  This is a way to raise awareness and get involved in something positive.

On May 4, 2012 at 12pm EST (9am Phoenix Arizona), students will join participants around the country and stand as a gesture of solidarity to show they are taking a stand against bullying. You can download a flyer at Stand4Change.org to take to your school or stop by USA Martial Arts Phoenix to get more information.

The force behind Stand4Change & Defeat The Label is Ken Kragen, the mastermind behind the 1980’s movement Hands Across America and the “We Are The World” fundraising song.  He has some big plans in the works that include a song, celebrity endorsements and a national media campaign to raise awareness on bullying.

The Stand4Change national press will launch soon. Here is a video already on YouTube.com to share with friends, teachers and administrators if you want to take a leadership role and get it started in your school.

The Bullying Dilema for Children in Arizona’s Schools

March 10, 2011

Children Feeling Trapped In The Rules

o Dad says hit him and teach the bully a lesson

o Mom says just walk away from bullies

o Teacher says tell on the bully

o School says zero tolerance for fighting means you get suspended

So it’s no wonder why children are telling me that they are confused. The unintended consequence? They get abused to avoid the other consequences of getting in trouble with Mom, the school, the teacher or disappointing Dad for looking weak. They would rather take the torment than deal with the shame or pain of the alternatives.

To cut through the bullying dilema The Arizona Bullying Intervention Initiative – AZ Children’s Bully Prevention Project is working with Nottingham Sword and Shield Security and USA Martial Arts Phoenix to offer a series of bullying solutions – Victim / Bully Proof Workshops. Free Bully Prevention “5 Step How to Handle a Bully Without Fighting” training is being sponsored FREE to all Arizona Children.
