Anti-Bullying Summit II—March 13, 2011

Imagine one day waking up and discovering that bullying, harassing, and saying rude mean comments were no longer the norm. How would your day change? The Jim Toy Community Center is committed to making this change in our community.

March 13, 2011 is the Anti-Bullying Summit II. We are meeting at the First Presbyterian Church 1432 Washtenaw Avenue in Ann Arbor, from 1:00-4:00 p.m.
