LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - An anti-bullying group rallied together Saturday night to put a stop to bullying in our local schools.
Nearly 30 people showed up for the first public meeting for Kids Rallying Against Bullying at the Lafayette YWCA.
K.R.A.B. member Andy Ingram said the goal of the group is to encourage students to stand up for not only themselves, but one another when it comes to bullying.
"If they see someone being bullied, not to feel that they can't say anything, but to actually go up, maybe wrap their arm around the kid that's being bullied, and say, 'hey, let's get out of here,' and then take them to someone who can help," said Ingram.
Ingram said the group was created about two and a half months ago, following the death of Angel Green.
Green was an 8th grader at Battle Ground Middle school who took her own life back in March. Green's mother believes it was due to bullying.
