ALSO Youth is PROUD to present Joey Panek

as the speaker for our Third Annual

"Stand Up Sarasota" Anti-Bullying Campaign!


Joey will be engaging students and community members in an interactive presentation on the intersection of social media use and bullying. Cyberbullying and other forms of discrimination against individuals or groups based on class, race, ability, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, size, and appearance will discussed in, perhaps, the most accessible and entertaining multimedia presentation you've ever experienced!


The school line-up for this year's "Stand Up Sarasota" will be posted soon.


However, Thursday, October 9th at 7pm, Joey will be speaking at a FREE and OPEN TO THE PUBLIC event at MCC Church of the Trinity (7225 Lockwood Ridge Road). Joey will be sharing what he has learned from his experiences working with youth on this campaign, and has invited several Youth Ambassadors from ALSO to share their stories and insight.










It is sure to be a great event and we hope to see you there!


You can find more information about Joey on his website, and more information regarding this year's presentation found, here.
