Anti-Bullying Initiative

The Museum of disABILITY History and People Inc. have begun development of an Anti-Bullying Program which will educate and encourage students to recognize and report bullying incidents they witness in their schools. The anticipated goal is to decrease the number of incidents that occur. Brie Kishel, project coordinator, has been researching the “Dignity for all Students Act,” legislation that will be going into effect on July 1, 2012, while also attending seminars and public forums in the local school districts to better understand the key concepts and concerns schools are trying to address. The goal is to have this curriculum available during the 2013 school year. The program will be a stand-alone community outreach program of the Museum and People Inc. designed for fourth grade elementary students. Although the approach of the program will be “teaching through puppetry,” this is a separate project from the Kids on the Block. For more information, contact Brie Kishel at or 716.629.3623.
