APA sends letter of support for U.S. Commission on Civil Rights bullying briefing
APA members Greg Herek, PhD, and Ilan Meyer, PhD, provided testimony on LGBT bullying and discrimination at a May 13, 2011, U.S. Commission on Civil Rights briefing on enforcing civil rights laws to protect students from bullying, harassment, and violence.
In addition, PI-GRO sent a letter of support (PDF, 23KB) that outlined research on effective methods for promoting a safe and healthy school environment. This is the latest in an effort by APA to work with our partners on anti-bullying efforts on Capitol Hill and within the Administration. Earlier this year, APA's CEO, Norman Anderson, PhD, as well as APA members, participated in the White House Conference on Bullying Prevention.
