Commissions Human Relations Commission Bullying Prevention
Welcome to the Human Relations Commission Bullying Prevention Program

As part of our Embrace Civility program, the Human Relations Commission invites every member of this community to support an environment where civility, respect and responsible actions prevail.  As a means to promote civility, the Human Relations Commission held a Bullying Prevention video competition in fall of 2013.  The prompt for the competition was: Everyone plays a role in bullying:The bully, the bullied and the bystander or… The person who makes a difference! What’s your take?

Please take a moment and view these videos. After watching the work of these local students we hope you will stop and think about your role in the dynamic of bullying.
