“As a former Florida certified teacher, I realize how big of an issue bullying is in our schools. Words are weapons and the effects can last a lifetime. We must all work together and treat each other with respect if we hope to deter and defeat bullying. And so I join with Bullyvention and the Congressional Anti-Bullying Caucus in calling for action to stop bullying now.”

— Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (FL), Chairman of Subcommittee on the Middle East and North Africa and former Chairman of the Committee on Foreign Affairs



“As a member of the Congressional Anti-Bullying Caucus, I am committed to the belief that all communities deserve a safe environment to thrive, and that our nation is in urgent need of solutions to stop bullying. I am hopeful this caucus will enhance community awareness and encourage positive behavior, kindness and respect for one another, and I am pleased that our Congressional Caucus is working with to get our message out to teens.”— Congresswoman Madeleine Z. Bordallo (GU), Ranking Member, House Armed Services Subcommittee on Readiness



“I commend Viraj Puri for creating, the only site of its kind that brings the U.S. Congress and teens together to stop bullying now. Whether young or old or somewhere in between – whether male or female – no matter our race, religion or differences – all of us must work together to defeat bullying, and this is why I applaud Bullyvention for being the first to team up with the Congressional Anti-Bullying Caucus in calling on us to raise our pens for change.”

— Congressman Eni F.H. Faleomavaega (AS), Ranking Member, House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Asia and the Pacific


“The results of bullying, on or offline, are too often tragic. It is inspiring to see communities standing up to bullies, and I am proud to use my “bully pulpit” to stand with them. It harms our kids and demeans our communities and schools when we know we can help and don’t make it a priority to do so.”

— Oregon Attorney General Ellen F. Rosenblum


“I am the mother of a 13 year old daughter (Jasmine). Jasmine is in the 8th grade and is in the midst of fighting bullying in her school. Jasmine is now home bound because of her attackers. I want to be a part of fighting this horrible epidemic in this country. My daughter should be able to go to school and get her education, however she hates school, and has made it clear she does not want to go back to school. Though it has been addressed by the school, I feel they are taking it lightly and her attackers have not been addressed. I am desperately trying to find resources to help my daughter to overcome this battle and reclaim her life. And for this I hold up my pen.”
