Resources to prevent bullying

by Shaun Knittel - SGN Associate Editor

October 16 marked the 2014 observance of anti-bullying day across the United States. The Community Engagement Section of the Office of Homeland Security released a list of resources to prevent bullying on Wednesday.

The DHS Office for Civil Rights and Civil Liberties (CRCL) Community Engagement Section shared the valuable resources on school bullying provided to them by the Department of Education's Office of Safe and Healthy Students.

The DHS did this because, they say, people approached DHS employees at community engagement roundtables and other meetings and expressed serious concerns about school bullying.

'You've mentioned that given recent events and accompanying media reports, you fear that your children may face backlash and could be bullied in school,' said DHS officials in an email containing the resources. 'You asked us for information on how to effectively prevent bullying and the steps to take if your children are the already the victims of bullying.'

In return, DHS says they reached out to the Department of Education and gathered a number of resources that may be useful to anyone that wants to help prevent bullying.

A key resource for preventing and responding to bullying can be found at www.stopbullying.gov.

'Bullying is primarily a state/local issue and each state addresses it differently,' said DHS officials.

The Laws and Policies page lists laws by state: http://www.stopbullying.gov/laws/.

Although no federal law directly addresses bullying, in some cases, bullying overlaps with discriminatory harassment when it is based on race, national origin, color, sex, age, disability, or religion. Information about discriminatory harassment can be found at http://www.stopbullying.gov/laws/federal/index.html.

And a recently released video on school districts' federal obligation to respond to harassment can be found at http://www.stopbullying.gov/videos/2014/02/civil-rights.html.

'We hope these resources are useful to you, your family, and your community,' said DHS officials. 'As always, thank you for your support and your continued partnership.'
