DA Receives Award For Anti-Bullying Work

Posted: Updated:

Today, District Attorney Ashley Rich received the Community Leader Hero Award during the 3rd Annual Anti-Bullying Summit for her BullyBlocker program.

The Hero Awards are for individuals or groups who have addressed bullying situations in schools or communities through actions such as intervening on behalf of bullying victims, developing and implementing anti-bullying programs, effectively addressing bullying in proactive and unique ways, establishing and implementing successful behavior modification programs for aggressors, building partnerships with agencies that share concerns for student emotional health and safety and help in interventions through counseling services, sponsorships, programs and creating a Helpline or help agency that will provide immediate support for bullying victims.

Ms. Rich implemented a countywide anonymous phone texting program, BullyBlocker, and an educational program throughout Mobile County to train young people, parents, and school administrators on effective methods to counteract bullying.   Her numerous efforts, including BullyBlocker presentations to over 10,000 students throughout the county, have helped people understand the scope and gravity of bullying and the urgency needed in addressing it.  These endeavors have had a tremendously positive impact on the community.
