The Canadian Safe School Network is proud to announce that we are the Canadian charitable partners of the newly released film Bully Fighters.
We are very pleased to support this film as it addresses a very crucial issue that we at CSSN have been working to combat for many years. Bullying affects thousands of school-age children across the country. The effects of bullying can be directly related to depression, anxiety, social exclusion and in some cases youth suicide. This film is working to spread awareness and prevention.
Bully fighters is an award-winning short film and fundraiser being released just in time for Canada’s National Bullying Awareness and Prevention week. Bully Fighters is not just a movie, it’s a movement. the team behind the movie is working to create change. They are looking to change behaviour regarding bullying as well as to change laws.
Their website states “Bully fighters is a film that is meant to get people talking about social justice and what we can do to make the world a safer place for all of us.”
Of course, this is something that the Canadian Safe School Network is honoured to be a part of.
We would like to invite you to the red carpet premiere of bully fighters on Monday, November 16, 2015. Monday is the first day of national bullying awareness and prevention week. this screening will also include a Q&A, solid auction and wine reception to follow. The event is hosted by the producers of the film and in association with the Canadian safe school network. Tickets are limited so be sure to buy them today!
