State Rep. Bronna Kahle of Clinton introduced House Resolution 84 to observe May 4, 2017 as Anti-Bullying Day in Michigan. The resolution encourages citizens to “aid in bringing awareness and taking preventative action to affect societal attitudes toward bullying and its prevalence in society.”
“Bullying within and outside school walls negatively affects the lives of countless students. They should be able to learn freely and without fear of harassment in any physical, verbal, written, or electronic form,” Rep. Kahle said. “I encourage everyone to join me and stand against bullying.”
Rep. Kahle was joined by two community members in support of the resolution, Haley Petrowski and Steve Barkway. Petrowski, an Adrian College student and Lenawee County Fair Queen, is a strong advocate against bullying and Barkway is a Lenawee County radio personality from WLEN-FM.
The resolution passed with overwhelming bipartisan support.
