Cozen PAL Youngsters Stand Up to Bullying

Cozen PAL member singing with Susan Goodman

More than 25 Cozen PAL members participated in an anti-bullying lesson on November 26, 2012. The youngsters were able to express themselves musically through a one-of-a-kind musical program called Stand Up! Speak Out! created by Susan Goodman, saxophonist, songwriter, educator.

Participants were treated to inspirational songs such as “Do the Right Thing” and “Think before You Speak.” The presentation and lyrics encouraged youngsters to practice social responsibility and not be a bystander to bullying.

This lesson is Cozen PAL’s first project towards receiving the highly regarded No Place for Hate® designation. By providing a model for responding to and preventing acts of hatred, No Place for Hate® is an innovative and powerful method created by the Anti-Defamation League for reducing bias and bullying, increasing appreciation for diversity and building communities of respect.

PAL thanks Susan Goodman for teaching its members a valuable lesson.
