"Bully" discussion at Linn Mar High School

Posted:
MARION (KWWL) -

Marion and surrounding communities gathered at Linn Mar Wednesday night to discuss the issue of bullying.

The group Iowa Upstanders hosted a panel of social experts to discuss the current state and future of bullying in Iowa.

The group was also joined by parents seen in the new documentary "Bully."

Audience members had the chance to pose questions to panel members on what can be done in the community to combat bullying.

"It's going to open lines of communication between the schools, parents, teachers, and students on how we can share ownership of bullying and how we can all work together and not just as one individual, but as a group and communicate on overcoming bullying," Anthony Brown, Manager of Community Engagement, said.

Iowa Upstanders plans on holding more meetings like the one at Linn Mar across the state.
