This project is part of a grant-based community outreach plan and was inspired by the PBS documentary Not in Our Town: Light in the Darkness and Not in Our Town: Class Action.

Not in Our Town: Light in the Darkness documents the heartfelt and inspirational response of the victim’s brother, the Mayor and Patchogue community members in the two years following a hate crime.

From faith leaders to quilting grandmothers, librarians to store owners, Not in Our Town tracks the steps one town took to repair a community that has been torn apart by bigotry and fear. PBS aired Not in Our Town: Light in the Darkness in September 2011.

The PBS premiere was supported by a Not in Our Town Week of Action September 18th-24th with user-generated video and mobile campaigns, screenings and public forums. Select stations, such as KLRN, kicked-off an anti-bullying campaign with local students to bring this issue to light.

KLRN collaborated with students from Catholic Charities Refugee program where they participated in discussions about their experiences in the United States. They talked about the ways that they were embraced by their fellow students, their diverse cultures, and also the hardships of being new to this country.

Students were offered a workshop on digital storytelling and proper interviewing techniques.

 

A Conversation on Bullying

 

School bullying statistics in the United States show that about one in four students in the U.S. are bullied on a regular basis. Everyday across school campuses in Bexar County, hundreds of students are being targeted by bullies. Many of the incidents go undetected as they occur when students are outside the perimeter of school officials. Texas Public Radio’s David Martin Davies talks with Dr. Roxanne Henkin and Angelica Lopez to discuss the role that the students, teachers, parents and community members can take to help combat this social issue. A Conversation on Bullying aired Thursday, February 16 on KLRN following Not In Our Town: Class Actions.
