Cyberbullying- a growing concern
By Meenu Gupta
A growing list of teens and children has committed suicide in the wake of cyberbullying. In response to community concern over the impact of this injurious practice, especially upon school age youth, the Santa Clara County Child Abuse Council's Legislations and Policy Committee will hold a special focus group. The meeting will present relevant issues and supportive information to parents, caretakers and those who work with youth.
The workshop will focus on how cyberbullying impacts children and families. Pending legislation/proposals in California will also be discussed and the following panelists will answer questions: Ray Mendoza, Deputy District Attorney of Santa Clara County; Ann Brownell, Mother / Amanda Network, Anti-Bullying Campaign, Santa Clara County; Sgt. Randy Schrieffer and Detective Kendra Nunes, San Jose Police Department, Child Exploitation Team.
There is no charge for admission and the workshop is open to the public; a light lunch will be provided. Please contact Kathleen Dong at firstname.lastname@example.org or (408) 268-8452 to RSVP by Friday, October 15.
