Students at Warren G. Harding Middle School in Philadelphia took a big stand against bullying Wednesday, thanks in part to a visit by the Cartoon Network, Sen. Bob Casey and a special video message from President Obama.
The students raised flags for the "Stop Bullying: Speak Up" campaign and were invited to sign a pledge against bullying on Facebook as part of the national launch of the campaign.
Students were also treated to a documentary on bullying that was introduced by the President.
Organizers say the bullying prevention pledge is in partnership with Facebook, the Cartoon Network and other school based events
