From Not in Our School — related to the national organization Not in Our Town, here is news of daily videos for Bullying Prevention Month.
“For each day of the month,” says the website, “we will launch a new short film about standing up to bullying and intolerance that can be found here, and will also be posted to the NIOS Facebook page. The festival includes a range of films that showcase the incredible energy and enthusiasm of young people taking a stand against bullying, anti-gay bigotry, and all forms of hate. Some films are NIOT originals, while others are made by youth speaking out in a wide variety of creative ways.”
Each week the films will be centered around the following themes:

Contemporary police killings and the trauma that they create are reminiscent of the past racial terror of lynching.”
