STOMP Out Bullying's newest campaign National Culture Week™ was observed (April 9 – April 13, 2018). The focus of this initiative was to spark a conversation among youth about the need to change the culture from one of cruelty to one of kindness and inclusivity,. It provided an opportunity for youths to share and learn from each other’s diverse cultural backgrounds and experiences.
STOMP Out Bullying kicked-off the week by hosting a live stream Culture Week Panel discussion facilitated by celebrity influencers from the media, sports, entertainment and social media worlds. The goal of this panel was to be the catalyst for an online conversation which was held on April 10, 2018, as well as calling on schools and communities throughout the country to not only join the live stream discussion, but to continue the discussion throughout the week.
