Mayor Brown joins US Conference of Mayors Campaign to End Bullying

Bully movie to be Screened & Mayor’s Upstander Award to be Presented

Mayor Michael R. Brown will officially sign on to the Mayor’s Campaign to End Bullying at the Mayor’s Cabinet for Young People meeting this Wednesday, October 29th at 11:30 am in Grand Forks City Council Chambers.  The U.S. Conference of Mayors, working in coordination with The Bully Project, is spearheading the national Mayor’s Campaign to End Bullying that includes resolutions to eradicate bullying, access to the movie Bully, and various parent and educator resources.

“Our community is firmly committed to supporting a culture of respect and dignity,” said Mayor Michael R. Brown. “By signing this resolution, we further build on the work of the School District, the Safer Tomorrows partners, the Youth Commission and so many others. This campaign will provide even more tools and channels to address bullying and continue our commitment to young people and to safety as we have championed in the Grand Forks Promise.”

At the Cabinet meeting, Mayor Brown will also launch the inaugural Mayor’s Upstander Award that will honor a youth or an adult community member who is a change-maker for respect and dignity.  The award will be a powerful community tradition honoring an individual and celebrating a healthy, positive community culture.

The Cabinet will also be screening a portion of the movie Bully. Bully will be rebroadcast for family viewing on GF TV Channel 2 from Tuesday, October 28 to Friday, October 31, beginning at 7:00 pm.  This weekend the film will be available at 6:00 pm. The movie runtime is approximately 47 minutes in length.
