Equality Florida and the Safe Schools Coalition Celebrate Anti-Bullying Law Eight Years in the Making
Florida Becomes 36th State to Pass Anti-Bullying Law
After 8 years of effort on the part of hundreds of students, parents, educators and civil rights groups, The Florida Safe Schools Coalition celebrates the unanimous passage of a statewide anti-bullying bill.
According to Nadine Smith, Executive Director for Equality Florida, “The legislature has made clear that any school that fails to prevent and respond to anti-gay bullying and to protect every student will be in violation of this law and will face the consequences. We will hold them accountable.”
