Proud Partnership with Crowns C.A.R.E.S.
Creating a Respectful Environment in Schools
Generations Against Bullying (GAB) is proud to announce our spokesperson, Miss High School America, Annie Jorgensen, who was crowned last July in Orlando Florida.
The Miss High School America organization has a national platform called Crown C.A.R.E.S. (Creating a Respectful Environment in Schools). GAB and Miss high School America, Annie have partnered together to reach out to the schools and communities throughout Wisconsin to help raise bullying awareness and educate our youth in bullying prevention.
Our teamwork has enhanced our message about changing the attitudes of various generations, and helps to create a climate of trust among our youth.
Miss High School America,
Hope… for a better tomorrow

So many exciting things are occurring for GAB, including the name change- Generations Against Bullying. In becoming a nationwide organization, we incorporate a name that really describes what we strive to achieve. Generations from young to old that unite for the purpose of ending “traditions” that undoubtedly contribute to ongoing depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, drug use, school violence, and suicide. Of course we know that change does not come easy-
Shifting paradigms regarding acceptable behaviors will always be met with resistance, but it is through education and understanding that we replace ignorance with empathy. It is GAB’s hope that we continue to progress and influence the youth towards a better way of relating to each other, with civilized kindness rather than humiliating cruelty. Historically, most change begins with our youth as their minds are open to new perspectives. That is why GAB’s emphasis is to empower kids to stand up for respect and dignity; hopefully backed by the support of parents and teachers. Please let us know if you are a parent or other adult interested in supporting this change of culture in our schools and communities- we’d love to hear your feedback!
Send us an e-mail or call 414-241-2465.
Together we will Change the Culture of Learning.
