The New York Mets launched an anti-bullying public service awareness campaign designed to educate and support children about all forms of bullying. Jason Bay, R.A. Dickey, Daniel Murphy and David Wright are among the players who participated in tapings for the segment. The content was developed in conjunction with StopBullying.gov, an official U.S. Government Web Site managed by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and U.S. Department of Education.
For 18 years, the organization has been a proud sponsor of the Student Athlete Leadership Conference Series, a mentoring program that includes an anti-bullying and civility message with particular attention paid to language and behavior that is derogatory and offensive based on racial, sexual and ethnic biases. Over the years, thousands of high school athletes have been trained to promote positive activities to hundreds of thousands of elementary school students across Long Island.
