Student, parents, gather in 'town hall meeting' to discuss bullying in Tulsa schools

TULSA - A community effort to fight bullying is starting where it hits home the most.

Around 70 people turned out Tuesday night at Nathan Hale Junior High School for the first ever town hall meeting of Prevent Bulling Tulsa.

The event was a chance for parents and students to find experts and resources to help them fight bullying all in one place.

More than a dozen Tulsa agencies came together to help make Tulsa schools safer.

"We need to come together and find solutions somehow," said Roberta Kelley, the grandmother of a bullying victim. "If it takes us a long time, we're not going to give up. We're not going to give up. We can't, we don't give up on our kids."

Those in attendance learned about the district's anti-bullying policies, how to report an incident and where to turn for help.
