Kevin Jennings, assistant deputy secretary for the Office of Safe and Drug Free Schools, will speak at The Safety and Well-being of Our Children, an anti-bullying briefing hosted by Rep. Danny K. Davis (D-IL) at 8:30 a.m. on Thursday, May 12, in the Rayburn House Office Building in Washington, D.C.
Bullying victims will share real life stories and discuss their unique circumstances and challenges in responding to and coping with bullying on a daily basis. Participants will learn first-hand how social-networking, interactive gaming systems and sites, and Internet chat rooms have become venues for harassing and taunting victims. Panelists will discuss national initiatives—in the public and private sectors—aimed at ensuring the safety and well-being of our children.
