McKinley L. Price, DDS, MayorMayor McKinley L. Price, DDS has rallied community agencies and city departments in Newport News to work together to decrease bullying for all ages - especially our youth.  Outreach from the committee will be two-fold:

City departments and community agencies will work to increase the knowledge, skills, and abilities of adult to identify and react to bullying while helping to provide alternative activities for youth who either are bullied or are, themselves, the bullies.

The Newport News Public School System will continue to take the lead in bullying prevention with young people.

The Mayor's Campaign to End Bullying Committee has been meeting monthly to determine what is needed in Newport News to end bullying.

 Baseline data regarding existing anti-bullying activities has been collected and is being updated on a regular basis. From this data, efforts will be made to emphasize the anti-bullying campaign in all community activites in which committee members and others participate.  The culminating activity will be a 1000 Youth March that will be held in October 2015 in partnership with Parents Against Bullying, Virginia - http://www.pabva.com/AboutUs.html.
