Victoria Justice is standing up against bullying with DoSomething.org.
The 18-year-old actress has teamed up with the organization for a new PSA plus a new campaign.
“If we all stand together and bring awareness to bullying, we can help put an end to it,” Vic shared in a statement. “Don’t be afraid to stand up for yourself.”
With the help from the new film, Bully, Vic and DoSomething.org are giving teens a chance to address the realities of bullying in their schools and identify ways to make a change through the first ever student-led nationwide bullying census.
When bullying is witnessed, teens only intervene 11% of the time, while adults interfere even less so. Shockingly, most of the time there is NO intervention. Instead of continuing on the trend of issuing statistics gleaned from adult insights, DoSomething.org is finally lending a voice to those directly affected by bullying: the teens themselves.
Running through May, the new Bully Project urges students to speak up about bullying via a short Facebook quiz. Once completed, the students will get immediate results stating how their school is rated against the nationwide average, and they are encouraged to share the census and results with all of their Facebook friends.
Bonus, teens who participate by taking the short quiz will have the chance of being randomly selected to receive a college scholarship of up to $10,000. TAKE THE SURVEY!
