Educational Forum to Stop Girl-on-Girl Violence and Bullying

The Contra Costa Commission for Women would like to thank all of the attendees of our “Educational Forum to Stop Girl-on-Girl Violence and Bullying” held on Saturday, May 21st, at Diablo Valley College. We would like to extend a special thank you to all of the speakers who donated their time to make this important event possible. The Commission is currently reviewing the Evaluation Forms and Student Surveys received at the Forum, and plans to post survey results and event photos in the near future.

The report is now complete and available to download from our website. The CCCW will make it available to those school principals who participated in the survey, school district offices, and county supervisors to bring urgency to this matter, and to provide a model program on how to prevent or treat this behavior.
