Guam – October has been declared Guam Bullying Prevention Month. As we celebrate bullying prevention month, one of the activities planned is to unite and join in the movement against bullying worldwide and have a Unity Day on October 10.
Chief Justice F. Philip Carbullido has asked employees of the Judiciary of Guam to participate in this observance.
According to Joleen Respicio, Judiciary of Guam Anti-Bullying Program Coordinator, “We are asking all schools, anti-bullying partners and the community to promote October 10 as Unity Day. Some ways to promote Unity Day is to have students wear something ORANGE on Unity Day, either a dress down or wearing an orange ribbon.”
A poster and flyer explaining the event in greater detail is attached. You can also visit the PACER website at www.pacer.org. We would like to continue to raise awareness about bullying and send a message to our students to STAND UP TO BULLYING! We encourage the community to join us in celebrating UNITY Day on October 10, 2012.
Respicio added, “We invite you to join us in celebrating UNITY Day on October 10, 2012. Together we can STAND UP TO BULLYING!”
