Greendale, WI, Jan. 14, 2013 — Greendale Against Bullying (GAB Now), is pleased to announce that we have entered into a partnership with Milwaukee Public Schools and the Greendale School District in order to help prevent and effectively combat bullying within the school districts.
GABNow is a unique community-based, non-profit, student-advocacy group that has formed in response to the recent high-profile incidents of bullying in our community and across the country. GABnow is comprised of residents from all walks of life who care about the emotional and physical health of our students. Taking a
PROACTIVE approach to combating and preventing bullying will help to eliminate the old attitudes that bullying is acceptable. Together with our children, parents, students, administrators, educators, local law enforcement, businesses and community organizations we will help educate, prevent and provide the tools necessary to stop bullying. Awareness and education are key elements to helping our children find these solutions
GABnow will be an alternative source for students and parents to seek help in cases of suspected bullying. President Linda Lee said, “Having a working partnership with the school districts will help our organization, the schools and the community as a whole. Working together will have a direct and positive impact in addressing the issue of bullying.”
GABnow’s first public event: GAB has reserved March 20, the auditorium at the Greendale High School a showing of the Lee Hirsch Documentary, “Bully”. The doors open at 6:00pm and the showing starts at 7:00pm.
For more information please follow us on Facebook or see our website. The GAB mission is to provide resources with clear-cut channels for our children and residents to reach out and stop bullying. GAB’s will provide a hands-on, comprehensive and proactive approach in helping our children understand our differences so they can interact with each other with acceptance, respect and compassion.
Lind Lee, President
