Maybe you are a student who's being bullied.
Then again, you could be a parent who's worried their child is being bullied or perhaps is the bully.
You also could be an educator or an adult who was bullied as a kid and it still haunts you today.
No matter the reason, come hear survivor turned activist and New York Times best-selling author Jodee Blanco speak at The Bridge Teen Center, 15555 S. 71st Court, tonight at 7 p.m.
