Wicked Tackles Bullying at Summit


An anti-bullying message came to Omaha Thursday with a Wicked touch.

Omaha Peforming Arts and the touring production of Wicked presented a workshop on bullying at the Holland Center. The Anti-Defamation League also helped out.

Hundreds of students from the area participated, learning how to confront bullies and how to become allies for those who are being bullied.

We're told bullying has moved to a new level.

The Anti-Defamation League’s Alan Potash said, “We're seeing more of it in the media in relationship to cyber bullying and social media has taken bullying to a different surface. It used to be just in the classroom and on the playground. Now it can be a 24-hour-a-day seven-day-a-week incident when somebody is being targeted. "

Approximately 300 students from 32 schools participated in the workshop.
