TULSA - The Oklahoma Center for Community and Justice partnered with the Anti-bullying Collaboration of Tulsa to help raise awareness about bullying Sunday at Guthrie Green.
The event hopes to fight the problem of bullying in schools and in the workplace.
"I got tired of not only being picked on, but tired of seeing a lot of friends crying from it. Too many tears has been shed over it...this is an issue that is actually costing lives of many innocent people and if you're proactive in standing up against bullying you just might save someone's life," Bullying victim Dylan Kinser said.
Tulsans at the event took an anti-bullying pledge and put on blue wrist bands to show that bullying will no longer be tolerated. The event also held a unity concert where many artist took a stand against the behavior.
