Linda Lee, Executive Director of Generations Against Bullying (GAB), and Joal Derse, with Sadie, GAB’s Peer Ambassa-dog were invited to Assisi Homes of Kenosha, WI to meet the residents and staff, and present a program about bullying.
What wonderful hospitality!
Linda spoke about how pervasive bullying is in our society.
Joal showed the movie about Sadie, and you could hear a pin drop when the movie ended.
The movie illustrated how important acts of kindness are in helping others.
Linda described how if a bystander to bullying becomes and upstander the bullying will stop 85% of the time within 10 seconds.
She also told the audience that if someone is experiencing bullying, they need to tell someone.
