On any given day, as many as 160,000 students stay home because they are afraid of being bullied. One out of four teens is a victim of bullying, either at school or online. The problem is more significant for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) students, with nine out of ten experiencing harassment.
The Dignity & Respect Campaign is proud to partner with leaders, teachers, and administrators of youth organizations and schools to promote positive behaviors for youth and anti-bullying initiatives. Together, we are creating a Dignity & Respect Zone for Youth, a recognized safe place for the youth in our communities and schools. R U in the D&R Zone?
