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.
