Con­gress­man Raja Krish­namoor­thi’s Anti-Bul­ly­ing Bill Intro­duc­tion Event

Join Con­gress­man Raja Krish­namoor­thi as he intro­duces a new anti-bul­ly­ing bill on Decem­ber 2nd in Schaum­burg. It calls for the estab­lish­ment of anti-bul­ly­ing task forces to study, address, and reduce bul­ly­ing in pri­ma­ry and sec­ondary schools. It specif­i­cal­ly address­es bul­ly­ing of LGBTQ students.

The pur­pose of the Decem­ber 2nd event is two-fold. First to intro­duce the bill. Sec­ond, and more impor­tant­ly, to pro­vide an oppor­tu­ni­ty to raise aware­ness and vis­i­bil­i­ty of the per­va­sive­ness of bul­ly­ing in pri­ma­ry as well as sec­ondary schools. All com­mu­ni­ty mem­bers are invit­ed to attend!

The for­mat will be akin to a press con­fer­ence with the Con­gress­man, youth and LGBTQ advo­cates, edu­ca­tors, stu­dents, and oth­ers speak­ing about the impor­tance of address­ing bul­ly­ing and harass­ment in school. We would be delight­ed if you can participate.

The event will take place on Mon­day, Decem­ber 2, 2019 at 9:30 – 10:30am at the Ken­neth Young Center’s LGBTQ+ Cen­ter locat­ed at 650 E. Algo­nquin Rd., Suite 104, Schaum­burg, IL 60173.

Inter­est­ed in attend­ing? Please RSVP using Eventbrite.
