“I want to applaud the LA Fund and Superintendent Deasy for leading the charge to make sure all kids
have access to a healthy breakfast that will jump start their day, and get them ready to learn.”
Up to 70% of students across the nation are estimated to be negatively impacted by bullying in school. To address this community concern, the LA Fund kicked off our Anti-Bullying Campaign by hosting the nation’s largest anti-bullying symposium at the Nokia theater and implementing the first ever multi-site middle school anti-bullying program.
Through this program over 7,500 students from 49 LAUSD middle schools were brought together to view the powerful, award winning documentary, Bully. The LA Fund also provided teacher workshops focused on building more compassionate and reflective classrooms. In June 2013, a Safe School Summit was held to assist LAUSD teachers in establishing a culture and vocabulary of inclusion and safety on their campuses. The LA Fund continues its efforts to eliminate bullying in LAUSD schools by providing mini-grants for student-led anti-bullying projects.
