“We are so proud to once again join with Legislator Lafazan and our partners in government in commemorating October as Bullying Prevention Month in Nassau County with the annual lighting of the dome,” Joe Salamone, Executive Director of the Long Island Coalition Against Bullying said. “As rates of bullying related instances increase amongst children and teens it is more important than ever to make sure we keep a sharp focus on coping with current instances of bullying and preventing future instances from happening.”
