392 National Bullying Prevention Month

Proclamation

 

National Bullying Prevention Month

 

Whereas, bullying is physical, verbal, sexual, or emotional harm or intimidation intentionally directed at a person or group of people; and

 

Whereas, bullying occurs in neighborhoods, playgrounds, schools, and through technology such as the Internet and cell phones; and

 

Whereas, various researchers have concluded that bullying is the most common form of violence, affecting millions of American children and adolescents annually; and

 

Whereas, targets of bullying are more likely to acquire physical, emotional, and learning problems than those who are not bullied, and students who are repeatedly bullied often fear such activities as riding the bus, going to school, and attending community activities; and

 

Whereas, children who bully are at a greater risk of engaging in more serious violent behaviors; and

 

Whereas, children who witness bullying often feel less secure, more fearful, and intimidated.

 

Whereas, direct support professionals, including direct care workers, personal attendant, in-home support workers, and paraprofessionals, are the primary providers of long-term support and services for millions of individuals with disabilities.

 

Now, therefore, we the Warren County Commissioners of Warren County do hereby proclaim October 2020 as Bullying Prevention Month in Warren County.

 

ADOPTED this 23rd day of September, 2020.
