A few months ago Pink CARP embarked on a campaign to end teen bullying; at that time we introduced you to Sean Stante, a bullying victim; and on November 13, 2010, police arrested and charged two people, for criminal harassment and hate crimes against him.

Recently, A National Institute of Child Health and Human Development study concluded that 25% of children across Canada were being cyber bullied; harassed and/or intimidated via social media, the internet and cell phones; also Homosexual adolescents reported more experiences of bullying, sexual harassment and physical abuse than heterosexual adolescents. Bullying as a cause of sexual orientation is not a new topic, but recent media attention has brought awareness to the issue. Pink CARP continues it’s efforts to put an end to teen bullying once and for all.
