>Sirdeaner Walker Testifies on Beacon Hill
>Sirdeaner Walker, whose 11-year-old son Carl Joseph Walker-Hoover took his life earlier this year after constant bullying at school, gave testimony Tuesday before Massachusetts Legislature’s Joint Committee on Education, urging the passage of a comprehensive anti-bullying bill.
GLSEN has partnered with Sirdeaner to raise awareness on the pervasive problem of bullying and harassment in our nation’s schools. In July, Sirdeaner testified on Capitol Hill in support of the federal Safe Schools Improvement Act. GLSEN is pleased to continue to work with Sirdeaner to advocate for anti-bullying legislation in her home state of Massachusetts.
