While one in three kids is a target of cyberbullying, there are two kids who play a different role. Every day, kids are making critical decisions about how to live and treat others in a digital world, and many of them are providing brave and inspirational examples of what it means to step in and stop cyberbullying. In conjunction with National Bullying Prevention Month, Common Sense Media, Yahoo! Safely, and MTV’s A Thin Line initiative -- with The John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, The McCormick Foundation, and Chicago Public Schools as supporting partners -- have collaborated to bring together parents, teens, and teachers in a national, interactive conversation about how to empower kids to take a stand against cyberbullying, by practicing safe, smart, and respectful digital behavior

The event is free but you must RSVP
