13 Million and counting.......

Director Lee Hirsch- Impact Arts & Film Fund's Kimball Stroud - David Bass, Raptor Strategies
BULLY follows a school year in the life of five children and their families and confronts bullying's most tragic outcomes, including the stories of two families who’ve lost children to suicide and a mother who waits to learn the fate of her 14 –year-old daughter, incarcerated after bringing a gun on her school bus. 

NEA (National Education Association) President Dennis Van Roekel, AFT President Randi Weingarten and award-winning director & producer Lee Hirsch held an exclusive screening at the Robert H. Chanin Auditorium followed by a Q and A moderated by Washington Post and MSNBC contributor, Jonathan Capehart.

With rare access to the Sioux City Community School District, the film also gives an intimate glimpse into school buses, classrooms, cafeterias and even principles offices, offering insight into the often-cruel world of children, as teachers, administrators and parents struggle to find answers.
