Anti-Bullying Partnership to Prevent Violence and Suicide

The Anti-Bullying Partnership to Prevent Violence and Suicide is a coalition of City and nonprofit agencies, along with NYC Councilman Robert E. Cornegy, Jr., working in Bedford-Stuyvesant to increase parents’ awareness of the role social media plays in teen violence.

The Safe Summer Initiative

The Anti-Bullying Partnership to Prevent Violence and Suicide is kicking off in the summer and fall of 2017 with the Safe Summer Initiative, a campaign in District 16 schools to achieve the following:

  1. Increase the capacity of parents to recognize the signs of unhealthy internet usage among their children.
  2. Identify community resources that are available in helping them to combat these issues.
  3. Prevent the practice of young people using verbal and physical violence to solve social conflicts.
