Todd Patkin as he introduces STAND UP to Bullying 2012
Lizzie Velasquez. A story you HAVE to hear!
This video features Todd Patkin as he introduces STAND UP to Bullying 2012, which was held at the Tsongas Center in Lowell, Massachusetts on November 29th and was attended by over 5,200 middle and high school students from 180 schools across Massachusetts. In addition to Todd’s remarks, the video includes speeches from Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick and an incredible 23-year-old young woman named Lizzie Velasquez. Lizzie’s speech in particular is a must-see for everyone. It’s powerful, emotional, and very, very thought-provoking. If you have children ages 10 and up, I encourage you to watch it with them.
