My name is Viraj Puri, I am 17 years old and I have created a teen blog for bully prevention. I am pleased to announce that Bullyvention is the first site to team up with the U.S. House of Representatives’ Congressional Anti-Bullying Caucus.
You can learn a lot about bullying on my Bully Facts page and from the Caucus. But the main point of my blog is to use technology to bring lawmakers and teens together.
Because bullying is such a widespread problem in our nation and schools, my blog trends from Capitol Hill. From Capitol Hill, I interview Members of Congress who have a story to share or advice to give to victims of bullying. You can listen to my interviews on the Lawmakerz page.
I also believe it is important for Members of Congress to hear from teens. On my Write on Washington page, you can find the name of your Senators and Representatives and write them to say how you feel and what you expect lawmakers to do about bullying.
Go to Write on Washington or Your Message Here and make your voice roar. Send us a photo of you raising your pen and we will post it, too.
The pen is mightier than the sword, so Raise Your Pen and stop bullying now. I’m an activist. I hope you will be an activist, too.
