Free Screening of "Bully"


 
The end of bullying begins with me. 
 
October is National Bullying Prevention month. 
 
Family Matters, in collaboration with the Helen Matthes Library in Effingham, IL will be hosting a showing of the award winning film, “Bully”, by Lee Hirsch, on Tuesday, October 8th at 6:00 pm. at the library. 
 
Following the film we will facilitate a discussion about how to respond to and prevent bullying in our community.  The film is rated PG-13.  “Bully” is a beautifully cinematic documentary following 5 kids and their families over the course of a school year and offering insight into the issues of America’s bullying crisis.  With an intimate and often shocking glimpse into homes, classrooms, cafeterias and principals’ offices, this is a powerful and inspiring film that every educator, parent and teenager should see.  To register, visit www.effinghamlibrary.org or you can call the library at 217-342-2464.  Please join us!

If you or someone you know would like more information about bullying and Illinois law, please contact Family Matters at 866-43-7842!
