Today, Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer, along with many other companies and organizations, announced a new community campaign, Stand Up Orlando, to support the Zebra Coalition and the Holocaust Memorial Resource and Education Center’s UpStanders programs in raising awareness and education to prevent bullying.
Zebra Coalition is proud to roll out our refreshed anti-bullying campaign for all middle schools, high schools and charter schools in Orange County Public Schools. Now in its fourth year, our new campaign focuses on issues of cyber bullying, name-calling and demonstrates to young people how to stand up and speak up in support of those being bullied.
Thanks to this partnership, Zebra Coalition will be able to offer an Outreach Coordinator position who will provide education resources, workshops and support to teachers, parents, students, faith based organizations, businesses, after school programs and many other community organizations.
Zebra Coalition Director, Dexter Foxworth, shared “Our goal is to equip and educate our entire community on how to recognize bullying and how to support those being bullied, the bystanders and the bully. We hope to inspire everyone to stand with us and show our community’s youth that together, we stand behind them and support them.”
