Help Protect North Carolina Children from Bullying in our Schools

Please call your N.C. House Rep and ask them to vote for S.B. 526. Ask them to vote to make sure children are protected regardless of their county or school district.

EqualityNC has been taking the lead on providing our action plans on this legislation. Visit their action page for a quick and easy way to contact your legislator.

Teenadvocatedan provided us with information last night on the actions of one of the special interest groups whose actions might prevent the protection of certain students from bullying. If you need more information for your phone call or email, check out his post.

Please call and email now. The vote is at 7:00 p.m.


Y'all...I'm having some computer issues

I've lost four posts so far today. (They were the same post)

Please email and call. This one is so important. Don't let last minute amendments slide in there because you think we have this in the bag.

Vote Democratic! The ass you save may be your own.



Sent the e-mail, and...

I've sent the e-mail, (well many many e-mails over the past few months), and asked others to do the same. One nice thing about living in Chapel Hill is that everyone is so open minded, but a downside is that whenever there is a call to action to try to change elected officials minds on something, the people representing me are often already in the place where I want them to be.

That said, I was rather jealous of my mother, a public school teacher all her life, who recently got to talk to her Representative (Republican Nelson Dollar) directly over the phone. She called expecting to get a voice mail or secretary but the phone was answered directly by Representative Dollar and my mother as someone who has taught in middle & high school was able to very articulately make the case for the Bullying Bill with specifics.

I don't know that she actually changed his mind or anything, but there is no way he can claim he voted against the Bullying Bill because none of his constituents stood up for it. He said the bill had some language in it that he didn't like, but my mother responded, when have you ever seen a bill that was perfect, and doesn't every child deserve to feel safe at school? Which is a hard question to answer no to.

Please call or email now. The vote is at 7:00 p.m.

I would change that to say call AND e-mail now. The e-mail is important, it adds to the volume of e-mails that come in supporting the bullying bill, but on the chance that you can change a mind, please make the call!

Thanks, Jake

Will do.
