Lavaca, Arkansas – In partnership with the Lavaca School District, The Arkansas Martin Luther King Jr. Commission hosted a school-wide anti-bullying program.
On Monday, the event was held at the Lavaca High School gymnasium and featured educational presentations on nonviolence.
This comes after a biracial girl said she was targeted by students in a bullying incident at the middle school in late February.
Alyssa Shaw, a 7th-grader at Lavaca Middle School, claims that students shouted, “Rosa Parks, Black Lives Matter, come to the back of the bus, you have no rights,” on the school bus after finishing basketball practice.
To shine a light on conflict resolution and to emphasize the importance of reporting bullying incidents, the organization held a youth summit in March in Fordyce.
