The campaign, “Be an Upstander, Not a Bystander,” targets young people, their parents, educators and those who mentor youth.

According to the Department of Health’s Bullying in Anne Arundel County Report (Oct. 2018), bullying is a public health problem that likely affects 20 to 40 percent of middle and high school students in the county.

The Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD) chapters at George Fox Middle School and Northeast High School helped with the videos, which were produced by Pinnacle Communications. SADD is a national organization that helps young people successfully confront risk and pressures that challenge them throughout their lives.
