ReACTION¬†Youth Program students at the Community Health Academy of the Heights–a public middle school in Washington Heights–held a school-wide assembly to teach their peers how to identify bullying and help stop it.

The students discussed clips from the movie, “Bully,” participated in interactive exercises, and encouraged their peers to sign a pledge against bullying. Great job, kids!
