STOMP Out Bullying's popular campaign National Culture Week™ will be observed (April 8 – April 12, 2019). The focus of this initiative is to spark a conversation among youth about the need to change the culture from one of cruelty to one of kindness and inclusivity. It provides an opportunity for youths to share and learn from each other’s diverse cultural backgrounds and experiences.
Last year STOMP Out Bullying kicked-off the week by hosting a live stream Culture Week Panel discussion facilitated by celebrity influencers from the media, sports, entertainment and social media worlds.
The goal of this panel is to be the catalyst for an online conversation which will be held on April 9, 2019, as well as calling on schools and communities throughout the country to not only join the live stream discussion, but to continue the discussion throughout the week.
Last year's host was Nick Cannon and celebrities who served on the panel were Logan Browning, Josie (J.J.) Totah and LGBTQ Activist Sarah McBride.
