Since the inception of the internet and social media there has been cyber bullying. Much like traditional bullying, cyber bullying is when a person or group of people with more power or perceived power exert it on others, usually with less power. The key to stopping any type of bullying is taking that power away and #ChangeIt intends to do just that. Here is how it works.
Join the #ChangeIt community! Follow #ChangeIt on Twitter.
Act and Report
If you see someone being bullied send out the "Bat Signal." Don't respond to the bully yourself; simply get the word out to the #ChangeIt community--send support to the victim. Together, we can shift the power away from bullies. YOU can stand up and stop the bullying! When their power’s away, they can’t stay! There is strength in numbers.
How do I do this? If you seen a situation of bullying? Post the name of the person being bullied and the words, “needs us 2 #ChangeIt.”
“@dmiller212001 needs us 2 #ChangeIt.”
Investigate and Tweet
Did you see a #ChangeIt alert? Look up @dmiller212001 and see what’s happening. Next tweet @ the bullies and include the hashtag #ChangeIt. That's it, don't add any additional comments.
WHAT IF THE BULLY TARGETS ME???
They might at first. That’s why it’s important to keep comments positive. If they keep getting a steady stream of #ChangeIt messages from tons of different people, like 10 or 20 or more, they’ll get the message. They will lose their power. THERE IS STRENGTH IN NUMBERS. WHAT CAN WE DO?
TOGETHER WE CAN SEND A MESSAGE!
TOGETHER WE CAN CHANGE BEHAVIOR!
TOGETHER WE CAN SEND SUPPORT!
TOGETHER WE CAN #ChangeIt FOREVER!
If you are being bullied...you are not alone.
