Guam - Bullying prevention begins at home. With October designated as Guam Bullying Prevention Month, the theme was unveiled this morning before members of the Judiciary of Guam, the Guam Legislature, and the Department of Education.

According to Chief Justice Robert Torres, partnering with the agencies to launch anti-bullying awareness in the schools has been successful. He told KUAM News, "Since we've enacted those two different campaigns, we've seen a significant drop in the bullying at the department of education. I think their most recent statistic shows an 82% decrease in bullying incidents since the launch of the program."

School children are invited to celebrate bullying prevention at a safe schools ambassador training set for October 22 as well as a United Against Bullying wave on the same day at the ITC Intersection.
