Anti-Bullying March in Howell April 9
Originally printed 3/31/2011 (Issue 1913 - Between The Lines News)
HOWELL-The Michigan Democratic LGBT Caucus and the Michigan School Tolerance Campaign are holding a march to end bullying in Michigan schools on Saturday, April 9 at 10 a.m.
Attendees can gather behind the court house at 200 E. Grand River in Howell. Speakers include Wayne State University Law Professor Jocelyn Benson; Michelle Brown of the National Black Justice Coalition; Phil Volk, Chair of the Michigan Democratic Party LGBT Caucus; and Christopher Armstrong and Brendan Campbell of the University of Michigan Student Assembly.
The caucus said in a press release that although the march is "about opposing bullying in schools in general," it also seeks to bring attention to an anti-bullying bill in the state legislature. SB 0159, also known as Matt's Law, was first introduced in the state House by now-Sen. Glenn Anderson in 2006. The bill has not been able to make it successfully through the legislature in either its enumerated version (which includes specific language that protects LGBT students) or in its non-enumerated version.
