Congressional Anti-Bullying Caucus Launches with Bipartisan Support

Congressional Anti-Bullying CaucusPost submitted by Eric Cameron, HRC Digital Media Specialist

Yesterday marked the launch of the Congressional Anti-Bullying Caucus, a newly formed bipartisan caucus committed to the belief that “all communities deserve a safe environment to thrive.”

Rep. Mike Honda (D-CA), a former educator who has consistently achieved a perfect ranking on HRC’s Congressional Scorecard, is the founder and Chair of the CABC.

The caucus’ mission is to protect victims and prevent bullying in all its forms, “from school bullying to elder abuse to LGBT discrimination.” It is designed to provide a forum for individuals, agencies and Members of Congress to proactively respond to the underlying factors that lead to bullying.

According to HRC’s recent survey of more than 10,000 LGBT youth, bullying remains one of the most significant problems LGBT youth face in their daily lives. Learn more at hrc.org/youth.
