Today we’re sharing a story of hope and overcoming obstacles. Victor Cruz, wide receiver for the New York Giants, was discriminated against and bullied when he was younger. Now he’s helping someone else who’s been bullied: a gay teen named Joey. In the video below, Victor invites Joey to join him in the New York Giants locker room to help him overcome his fear of being bullied there.
It doesn’t matter what it’s for: bullying hurts. By banding together and standing up to bullying like Victor and Joey and did, we can make it easier to get through it and work to stop it. It’s important to stay strong and remember that it gets better. Learn how you can take action and stand up against bullying at theBULLYproject.com.
