Months after filming, Kristen, age 15, said, "I'm a little down. I miss talking to you. It felt good getting it out on set. You guys are really going to reach out to people."

We Want Your Hand-written Letters
stock

"Bullied to Silence" also documents cases of bullying with letters from across the nation from those who are currently being bullied with the use of hateful and hurtful words. Letters have been received from youth as far as Germany and Australia. The letter-writing campaign has also elicited stories from adults who still remember the days of being bullied verbally. Please send your letters to info@purplepeople.com

Sticks and stones may break your bones is true, but WORDS DO HURT. WORDS KILL.

Film Highlights Include:

Tyler

Tyler Clementi, age 17, former Rutgers University Student, jumped from a bridge because his intimate relationship was broadcast over the internet.

BULLIED TO SILENCE.    

His cousin, Jen Ehrentraut Segro, is the only relative of Tyler's to speak publicly about his death and she chose to speak to "Bullied to Silence".  

      

 

Blake-vertical

Blake Gaylord, 16, is a talented, award-winning dancer who was the target of vicious cyber-bullying, being called hateful and hurtful words such as "slut", "whore", "ugly", "dyke" and "untalented".  

 

How do social networks address cyber-bullying? What does it take to find out who the internet bully is? Does a private dance studio choose to ignore off-site bullying between its students?   

 

 

   

Caleb Laieski

Caleb, 17, bullied from age 15 because he is gay, was disrobed, called numerous anti-gay slurs and followed by a car that tried to hit him. Since then he spent time in Washington, D.C. lobbying for Safe-School legislation that is inclusive of GLBT language. 

 

The epidemic of bullying has not gone unnoticed among the politicians and the White House. The White House conducted a "Conference on Anti-Bullying" this Spring and "Bullied to Silence" was represented there.
