ANCOR Praises NCD/White House Partnership on Bullying Prevention

March 11, 2011

President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obamacalled for a united effort to address bullying on March 10 at the White House Conference on Bullying Prevention.The National Council on Disability (NCD) is part of an interagency steering committee, which includes the Departments of Education, Health and Human Services, and Justice. The committee began last summer identifying issues, risk factors, warning signs and activities that private, nonprofit, and federal agencies can undertake to combat bullying.


ANCOR is pleased that NCD is ensuring that children with disabilities are included in these national efforts to protect them from bullying. We urge the ANCOR community to get involved in this public-private partnership.Check out the new "StopBullying" website and the “Add Your Voice” web page for more information.
