Petition to Youth

Take a stand against Cyber-bullying!

The expanded use of social media by teenagers, has led to cyber-bullying becoming a major problem and although the belief that Millennial can defend ourselves, increasingly dangerous practice of cyber-bullying leaves us defenseless and in need. When bullying happens online it may feel as though you’re being bullied everywhere, even inside your own home. It can seem like there’s no escape. The feeling of being laughed at or harassed by others, can prevent people from speaking up or trying to deal with the problem. In extreme cases, cyber-bullying can even lead to persons taking their own lives.  Being online has so many benefits. However, like many things in life, it comes with threats that you need to protect against. Our group aims to help people to promote awareness against cyber-bullying and to ensure that all reported incidents of bullying and harassment are followed up appropriately and that support is given to all affected parties. We’re working to encourage positive behavior and interactions by giving people options to customize their experience on different online platforms. Our group creates a petition on Change.org with a Facebook page and a blog to inform the updates of the said campaign. We create an infographics and other related information that will offer knowledge about the petition to readers. The scope of the project is to be able to reach the people around the world and the petition's supporters.
