TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - Governor Sam Brownback is working to combat bullying.
He signed a proclamation Friday morning declaring October 7th - 11th Bullying Prevention Awareness Week. October is Bullying Prevention Awareness Month.
The Kansas Children's Service League is partnering with the Kansas Department of Education and area businesses to display posters on how to target bullying and prevent it.
KCSL officials say as kids get more involved in technology, they have new challenges.
"There's new challenges in this area because of cyber bullying and the amount of time that kids are online and so I think it's just creating a new generation that we're needing to educate and to empower," said Vicky Roper, Director of Prevent Child Abuse Kansas at the Kansas Children's Service League.
