Sac City’s anti-bullying efforts highlighted at Capitol rally
SCUSD Board President Darrel Woo and district Bullying Prevention Specialist Jessica Wharton participated in the second annual Stand Up, Speak Out Anti-Bullying Youth Rally at the state Capitol last Saturday.
The rally, sponsored by the Sacramento Regional Coalition for Tolerance, a partnership with OCA Sacramento and Senate pro Tem Darrell Steinberg, brought together several agencies to promote a strong anti-bullying message.
Speakers included Board President Woo, Assembly Member Roger Dickinson, Senator Steinberg and Ben Wagner, United States Attorney for the Eastern District of California.
Wharton manned a booth that provided anti-bullying literature for both students and parents. More than 500 attendees were also entertained as students from several school districts performed drumming, singing and rapping.
