The Mayor’s Initiative to End Bullying Committee is a community relationship of programs and services with available resources for working with youth in a joint effort to End Bullying. This vast network of public and private agencies is the vehicle to service youth in all facets of our municipality to raise awareness of the Mayors’ Campaign to prevent bullying in Newport News. End bullying programs that are already taking place in our community has formed this network of one force to strengthen the stand against bullying in or city.
The Mayors’ Campaign to End Bullying is a new initiative in partnership with The U.S. Conference of Mayors and The BULLY Project to make our schools and community safe and supportive environments for all youth. Over 200 Mayors across the nation are participating in this campaign including Newport News Mayor McKinley Price, DDS. Mayor Price is focused on raising awareness to prevent bullying in Newport News and is asking stakeholders from the community to join together to help make that happen. As civic and community leaders, we have an important role to play in educating and engaging our community to tackle and prevent bullying.
The initiative is already raising awareness through local programs, activities, and events already taking place in the community over the months leading up to the main event in October.
Together—the Mayor’s office, area school leadership, community stakeholders, youth, and caring individuals – we can change the culture in our schools and communities so that tolerance, kindness, and safety are top priorities.
We're excited to be participating in the Mayor's Campaign to End Bullying, a new initiative in partnership with The U.S. Conference of Mayors and The BULLY Project to make our schools and communities safe and supportive environments for all youth.
