President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama posted a video on Facebook on Wednesday to promote a nation conference on bullying prevention they’ll host at the White House on Thursday.
Bullying “affects every single young person in our country,” the President said. “Putting a stop to bullying is a responsibility we all share.”
At Thursday’s conference, the President and First Lady will host parents, teachers, students, community leaders and others at a White House Conference on Bullying Prevention. WhiteHouse.gov/live will have live video throughout the day, including online chats where you can discuss bullying with experts on the subject.
Meanwhile, members of Congress are introducing a flurry of bills this week designed to address bullying and harassment of students, including LGBT students, timed to coincide with the White House conference. Read the full story here.
