NEW: Roger Williams Students Launch Anti-Bullying Campaign

Wednesday, February 06, 2013

 

Five Roger Williams University public relations students are behind a new anti-bullying campaign in Rhode Island, which was recognized by Governor Lincoln Chaffee and Mayor James Diossa of Central Falls both issuing proclamations recognizing the month of February as Anti-Bullying Awareness Month. RememberMeRI, a month-long campaign to stop bullying in schools throughout Rhode Island targets students and community members and proposes ways to address the issue of bullying in respect to both the bullies and the victims.

The campaign hosts presentations at schools throughout the state and has worked closely with students at Mt. Hope High School of Bristol and Central Falls High School of Central Falls to prepare for several events occurring in February.

Ribbons and remembrance

The campaign team will host a ribbon ceremony at Central Falls High School on Friday, February 8th. At 3p.m., students will hang ribbons on the front steps of Central Falls High School with messages personally written by CFHS students to their bullies.

On February 16th Central Falls High School will also be the site of the anti-bullying campaign’s 2K Walk Away From Bullying. At the 2K Walk Away, Mayor Diossa will join community members as they walk to end bullying. Free t-shirts, pins, and necklaces, as well as Swingjuice Hybrid Energy drinks, will be available to those in attendance.

For more information regarding the Roger Williams University Public Relations Student Society of America’s February campaign against bullying throughout Rhode Island, visit www.facebook.com/RememberMeri or contact Theresa Agonia at (401) 663-4252.
