Maurine Molak of David’s Legacy Foundation talked about the organization’s mission to increase awareness of bullying in the modern world of social media and technology. She discussed current legislation pertaining to the problem of bullying in schools along with programs and partnerships available.
A year and a half ago, we launched the Be Internet Awesome program to help kids be safe, confident explorers of the online world. We built a little something for everyone: a curriculum for teachers, resources for parents and an adventure-packed online game for kids.

At that time, cell phones were still scarce in the schools, and administrators were reluctant to support laws that required schools to confront cyberbullying, but we saw where things were heading.
