The City of Sacramento’s Youth Commission begins its Anti-Bullying Campaign on Tuesday, March 24, with a formal presentation to the Mayor and City Council at the standing City Council meeting at 6 p.m. in the council chambers, 915 I Street.

Advocacy groups, organizations, parents, students, government officials, family members, businesses and young people around the world are uniting against bullying. Now the City of Sacramento Youth Commission is too.

The Sacramento Youth Commission is a youth led commission/advocacy group whose mission is to protect, preserve, and enhance the quality of life for Sacramento youth by advising the City Council and the public on issues relating to youth policies, programs, and opportunities. Its members are between the ages of 14-19.

The Sacramento Youth Commission is proud to speak out and stand up against bullying throughout their communities, schools and neighborhoods. The commission has produced a Public Service Announcement (PSA), which highlights the damaging effects of bullying. The commission is reaching out to various community organizations and asking them to help spread the word about the upcoming campaign. The commission wants to see young people grow and thrive in a healthy, loving environment.
