GENERAL COALITION MEETING
"An End to Bullying"Our country has recently witnessed an outbreak of LGBT teen suicides as a result of bullying. During this month's General Coalition Meeting, API Equality-LA will be showing the short documentary, "Bullied: A Student, A School and a Case that Made History." Produced by the Southern Poverty Law Center, this film chronicles one student's torment at the hands of anti-gay bullies and how he stood up to confront the school district that failed to protect him -- leading to a landmark decision that declared public schools could be held accountable for not stopping antigay abuse. The screening will be followed by a discussion on bullying and how to create safe environments for our young people.
We will also have our committee reports on ways we have educated and impacted our community within the past month. As a light dinner will be served, PLEASE RSVP.
