More than 500 people gathered at the Legislative Office Building in Hartford on November 22, 2010, for a wide-ranging conversation between young people who've been affected by bullying, state and federal officials, and local stakeholders who've experienced success in tackling the problem.

The keynote talk was delivered by Kevin Jennings, assistant deputy secretary of the U.S. Department of Education and head of the federal office responsible for bullying and school safety issues. He led the design of the new federal Safe and Supportive Schools grant program and convened the Department of Education's first-ever bullying summit in 2010.

The forum was sponsored by the Commission on Children, the Governor's Prevention Partnership, and the Connecticut Department of Education.
