UO Begins Anti-Bullying Campaign

EUGENE, Ore. — University of Oregon students are working with former Duck football player LaMichael James to stop bullying in the Eugene-Springfield area.

The journalism students are working on the anti-bullying campaign as part of a national public relations contest. They enlisted James’ services to help teach kids the importance of respecting themselves and each other.

Monday was the first of a handful of seminars was held at local schools and the Eugene YMCA.

“We give them scenarios for bullying and cyber bullying and then perform it for their peers and for us. It was really neat to see the kids be so receptive to our message, and some kids even shared their own bullying stories, so it was neat of them to open up like that,” said Jessica Jorgenson, UO Bateman PR Team member.

Parents are invited to a special workshop at the YMCA at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 21. Click here for more information.
