Cyber-bullying and the impacts of social media will be the focus of the second annual Anti-Bullying Conference in Traverse City on Fri., Oct. 25. The one-day conference, offering workshop sessions for both youth and adults, takes place from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Hagerty Center. Admission is free but registration is required. Speakers include Kevin Eppling, the East Lansing father whose personal tragedy led him to advocate successfully for passage of the anti-bullying legislation known as Matt’s Safe School Law in 2011; and Anthony Ianni, the Michigan State University alumnus who became the first known athlete with autism to play Big Ten basketball. The event is hosted by the Anti-Bullying Task Force, a partnership of local, regional and statewide organizations aiming to improve school climate and help vulnerable populations of all ages. Additional hosts include the Michigan Department of Civil Rights and Northwestern Michigan College.
