Safe School Advocate will be speaking at VHS
Monday, February 8th
Jamie grew up in Ashland, WI where his life changed drastically when he was targeted in middle school for being gay. After realizing many other young people endured similar fates, he decided to fight back. Jamie won a landmark lawsuit in Federal Court that establishes that all young people deserve a safe educational experience. “Bullied” is a documentary that chronicles his story. Jamie now travels the country and speaks on safe school advocacy and bullying.
This will be an interactive presentation where students and staff will hear Jamie’s story and the power words have over others, their responsibility to do something about it and how they can individually or as a group change their school climate.
Staff and the public are invited to attend a presentation at
3:30 p.m. in the Goodman Auditorium. You are asked to please view the short documentary Bullied prior to the presentation due to time constraints @ https://youtu.be/FZZTjm1GoKs
