Numerous requests from schools and companies are coming in for screenings of “Bullied to Silence.” We are currently considering licensing and distribution options that will allow it to be shared with as many people as possible.

Scott Hirschfeld and others in the Education Division of the Anti-Defamation League honored us by reviewing the “rough cut” of
“Bullied to Silence.” Scott commented, “We found many of the stories in the film to be quite moving, and the message of respect and inclusion definitely resonated for us. I also want to acknowledge that the film has many wonderful elements and that it makes an important contribution to the national dialogue around bullying.”

1. Just get over it.
2. Call the bully names back.
3. Don’t be such a sissy.
4. Hit the bully.
5. It’s a phase, the bully will outgrow it.
6. Sticks and Stones will break your bones but words will never hurt you.
7. Try to fit in more.
