1400 Foch St
Fort Worth, TX 76107

DESCRIPTION:
The Fort Worth Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated invite you to join us as we rally around our students, families, and our community to raise the awareness of bullying. Delta Sigma Theta Sorority is working with several organizations within the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to implement educational outreach initiatives that raise awareness about issues affecting families such as mental health, including bullying. According to statistics reported by ABC News, nearly 30 percent of students are either bullies or victims of bullying, and nationwide 160,000 children stay home from school each day to avoid being bullied-and the effects can be life-long, even tragic. Bully victims are between 2 to 9 times more likely to consider suicide than non-victims, according to studies by Yale University.

Hazing is also found to be prevalent not only in college organizations, but in high schools as well. In Texas, it is difficult to get a handle on how often hazing occurs. The Texas Education Agency does not track hazing incidents, nor does it require districts to do so.

Bullying is also prevalent in professions such as nursing. ANA seeks to protect nurses from all types of workplace conflict including bullying through various methods including advocacy, policy, and resources. We want nurses, employers, and the public to jointly create and nurture a healthy, safe, and respectful work environment in which positive health outcomes are the highest priority.

Join us as we rally around students and all affected to prevent bullying and hazing.
