cyberbullying and the law
Cyberbullying and the Law

Recently, several states have actually passed laws against Cyberbullying. This creates opportunities for bullies to be caught and gives schools more authority to crack down on the unkind behaviors.

Many schools are also promoting cyber-smarts and are even kicking some bullies out of class.

Call to Action

If you know someone who is a victim, stand up, and let them know that you’re there for them. Inform parents, guardians, and teachers about the incident. If you’re the victim yourself, do the same. If people know that you’re being bullied, they’ll help.

Lastly, never be the bully or bystander. If anyone you know is being bullied online, help them out or tell an authority figure about the issue.
