David Mathews Center for Civic Life, which is based in Montevallo, will present the forums.
The forums are designed for students in eighth grade and older. Anti-bullying forums for younger children will be held in spring 2013. Bullying issues are not just limited to youth. Adults can be affected, too. Bullies can come in the form of teachers, co-workers, parents, etc.
The goal of the forums is to give communities an opportunity to delve into what causes bullying and to find solutions. Facts and figures on bullying will be distributed at each event.
The forums are free, but people should call 226-3742 in advance to help organizers prepare for attendance.
Dates for the forums are:
North Avondale Library, Tuesday, October 23, 1:00-3:00 p.m.
Five Points West Library, Tuesday, October 23, 5:30-7:30 p.m.
North Birmingham Library, Monday, October 29, 3:30-5:30 p.m.
Springville Road Library, Thursday, November 8, 6:00-8:00 p.m.
