PoliticoPro WIRE:

7/22/14 12:28 PM EDT- The U.S. Conference of Mayors released a list today of more than 170 mayors that have signed onto a project aimed at raising awareness about bullying and creating safer school climates.The conference met at the end of June and decided to support the initiative. Since then, more than 170 mayors have decided to partner with The BULLY Project to create customized plans addressing bullying in their districts. The initiative is in its first stages, but will culminate in the mayors taking action in October during National Bullying Prevention Month. “Developing and implementing long term anti-bullying initiatives that engage top level community stakeholders including superintendents, law enforcement and philanthropic leaders is critical for the health and safety of not only our children, but all our residents,” Sacramento Mayor and USCM President Kevin Johnson said in a statement.
