On October 18, teens, parents, and educators in Chicago will participate in a provocative anti-bullying town hall hosted by MTV celebrity SuChin Pak and sponsored by Common Sense Media, MTV’s A THIN LINE, and Yahoo! Safely.
You and your students are invited to join us online. Tune in live to watch the event via webcast, and submit your own questions, comments, and topics for discussion through Twitter.
We hope you will join us for this remarkable opportunity to connect and collaborate around this important and timely topic. Even better, make watching it an extra-credit assignment! (Please note that the event is appropriate for students in 8th through 12th grades.)
