The Minnesota State Senate passes the Safe and Supportive Schools Act! This law will take Minnesota from having the weakest anti-bullying law in the country to the strongest. It provides educators, parents and students with tools and resources they need for bullying prevention and intervention.

This is a great step towards the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America’s 2011 memorial supporting the prevention of bullying. The following synods also passed this memorial:
Eastern North Dakota
Metropolitan New York
Metropolitan Washington, D.C.
Minneapolis Area Synod
Northern Great Lakes Greater Milwaukee Area
Saint Paul Synod
South-Central Synod of Wisconsin
Texas-Louisiana Gulf Coast
Upstate New York
We rejoice with Minnesota and pray that many Lutherans will prompt their state’s lawmakers to adopt similar policies.
