Pledge Anti-Bully Festival is a national community driven event that brings students and their families together for a day outdoors which supports many anti-bullying efforts. The event will have music stages with tons of celebrity teen artists and YouTubers, advice & counselor tents, volleyball, video games and many other fulfilling activities. There are three themes throughout the festival.
Theme A is entitled "Redefining Beauty" showcases female teens and their mothers. They will make it a day of taking "selfies" and collectively displaying their willingness to embrace their inner beauty and to not be influenced by what the major magazines and television shows depict as being "beautiful". Supportive female bands, female DJs, motivational speakers, life coaches and other positive female role models will participate in making this a true day of redefining "beauty".
Theme B is entitled "YouChoose" showcases strong YouTube personalities (YouTubers) chosen by the fans. They are a mix of singer/songwriters and fashion enthusiasts. All day will be performances by pop music bands, dance music DJs and more. As a staple to the festival, motivation speakers, advice & counselor tents and other positive role models will participate in this day's "YouChoose" theme.
Theme C is entitle "Era 2 Era" is dedicated to the adults. The 80's era of music up to the current state of music will play from noon till close of the weekend. It will invite parents and teachers to participate in this anti-bullying initiative in a way that speaks to them. Re-introducing music and popular culture from those years will allow adults to remember the growing pains and what it was like for each of them as grade school students.
This anti-bullying festival will show that there is strength in numbers and that not only will bullying never be tolerated but that this unified movement can help change the behaviors of the bullies themselves. Collectively, we can save all of our children.
