“We are very proud of our anti-bullying efforts to date and are looking to do much more. From school visits to honoring Upstanders, our second annual symposium is the latest initiative of the Jets ongoing commitment to raising awareness about the devastating effects of bullying,” said Neil Glat, New York Jets President. “In partnership with STOMP Out Bullying, we will continue to work with local educators and others in our quest to eliminate bullying.”

During the event, the Jets welcomed Muncipal Credit Union to the Jets Tackle Bullying Campaign. The campaign aims to create awareness about bullying throughout the area and works with students and educators to resolve bullying in local schools.

The growth of the Tackle Bullying Campaign enabled the Jets to offer schools throughout the tristate area a branded STAMP Out Bullying Educator’s Prevention Toolkit at no cost to the schools. This toolkit facilitates meaningful dialogue, educates students through the proven Social Emotional Learning methods, adopt character building and bring both students and educators together to change school climate.

Ross Ellis, founder and CEO, STOMP Out Bullying added “Once again, we are honored to be a part of this wonderful symposium for educators in the Tri-state area. Through our work with the New York Jets we have made great strides educating the educators on best practices in bullying prevention. The New York Jets are a wonderful and valued partner and with them we are thrilled to be instrumental in stopping bullying behaviors.”
