a Proclamation for October to be named Colorado National Bullying Prevention Month.
WHEREAS, bullying is physical, verbal, sexual, or emotional harm or intimidation intentionally directed at a person or group of people; and
WHEREAS, bullying occurs in neighborhoods, playgrounds, schools, and through technology, such as the Internet and cell phones; and
WHEREAS, various researchers have concluded that bullying is the most common form of violence, affecting millions of American children and adolescents annually; and
WHEREAS, thousands of Colorado children and adolescents are affected by bullying annually; and
WHEREAS, targets of bullying are more likely to acquire physical, emotional, and learning problems and students who are repeatedly bullied often fear such activities as riding the bus, going to school, and attending community activities; and
WHEREAS, children who bully are at greater risk of engaging in more serious violent behaviors; and
WHEREAS, children who witness bullying often feel less secure, more fearful, and intimated.
NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that it is proclaimed October as Colorado National Bullying Prevention Month; and
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that Colorado schools, students, parents, recreation programs, religious institutions, and community organizations be encouraged to engage in a variety of awareness and prevention activities designed to make our communities safer for all children and adolescents.
