recognition of National Bullying Prevention Month, the Mayor’s Campaign to End
Bullying invites the public to participate in Unity Day on Friday, October

their support for a Bully-Free Alexandria. Social media users are also
encouraged to hashtag posts and photos with #Green4BullyFree .
October, National Bullying Prevention Month, Alexandria is hosting a series of
activities to raise awareness about how to identify, respond to, and prevent
bullying. The month’s activities include sports days,
family nights, school and recreation activities, a youth poster contest, and
more. Participants at each activity will have the opportunity to pledge
their support and receive information and resources on how they can help reduce
bullying. For more information on National Bullying Prevention Month, and
a calendar of events, visit www.alexandriava.gov/EndBullying.
Mayor’s Campaign to End Bullying was started in the summer of 2014 by then-Mayor
William D. Euille. Over the last two years, city agencies, school system,
community organizations, youth leaders and community residents have worked
together to increase the awareness of the negative effects of bullying and to
prevent bullying among Alexandria’s youth.
