HOUSTON, TX – Check out the headlines: it’s no secret that bullying has gotten worse year after year.

The Anti-Defamation League is turning a bad experience into a learning experience. It hosted its No Place for Hate youth summit.

Over 300 area middle school students joined in with anti-bullying activates and learned some anti-bullying tactics. The Dionysus Theatre performed “True Confessions of a Bully” featuring actors both disabled and able-bodies alike.

“We want these kids to understand how important it is to be an ally to someone who is the target of bullying and name calling,” said Susan Shaw, with the Anti-Defamation League.
