Bullying prevention events
Join in events across Alberta and the world that promote awareness about bullying.
Bullying Awareness Week (BAW) | Nov 13 to 19, 2016
This annual event promotes bullying awareness and positivity. Let’s work together to create a civil society built on healthy and respectful relationships. This year’s theme is “Reach Out, Speak Out”. We are encouraging Albertans to promote healthy relationships by reaching out to others and prevent bullying by speaking out when they see it happening.
Events to support National Bullying Awareness Week will be taking place across the province.
We will post information on events as it becomes available, keep checking for updates.
If you have an event you would like to be posted, please email: HS.firstname.lastname@example.org

Bullying is a problem in our schools, workplaces, homes, and on the internet. The pain of being picked on, excluded, shamed, assaulted, or gossiped about – is unacceptable.
