Athens, Ga-The HumanKind movement is an anti-bullying project launched by a group of University of Georgia students. Their message, be the good in 7 billion.
The goal of the HumanKind movement is to help stop bullying by recognizing that everyone is different but, more importantly, the campaign encourages you to be kind. HumanKind team member, Jade Thomas, says, “To commit to at least one act of kindness a day can really help and make a difference in reducing the rates of bullying in our schools, in our university, in our community.”
Their kill them with kindness approach will fight bullying one small act at a time. They’re hoping students will step in and choose to be kind when they see someone being picked on. The movement focuses on youth bullying but also encourages teachers, professors, and parents to help get involved.
The group will be visiting middle schools and high schools and will also be on UGA’s campus all next week.
