Lansing - On Thursday, March 15 at 2 pm, the Michigan Civil Rights Commission will hold a regular business meeting. This will take place at the Hagerty Center, Room B, Northwestern
Michigan College, 735 Front Street in Traverse City.
Following the business meeting, a public forum will be co-hosted by Northwestern Michigan College and the Michigan Civil Rights Commission. This will take place in the same room, from 4
to 7 pm. It is the fifth in a series of public forums on bullying, its effects on victims, bystanders, families, workers and educators held in Michigan.
Michael Zelley, Commission Chair, stated, "As we've traveled the state and learned more about bullying and harassment and its life-changing long-term effects, the Commission has become
even more committed to hearing people's stories and using what we learn to foster change in Michigan."
The Commission and attendees will hear from invited speakers and the public. If you've had an experience with bullying, we'd like to hear from you. Please email your written testimony to millerj31@Michigan.gov by March 13, or let us know if you'd like to give verbal testimony by sending a note to that email address.
