Children participate in workshops that teach them how to stand up for themselves to prevent bullying by becoming the characters in a book, Be A Superhero By Saying No To Bullying. The book is personalized with photos taken of participating children in superhero costumes. The children also write poems and learn songs sung to familiar tunes with anti-bullying messages. It is our wish that this form of creative expression will lead to less bullying in schools and will impact many youth.

Do The Write Thing wants to create a citywide kindness movement in the District of Columbia public schools and have students participate in kindness challenges. Teaching children how to be kind significantly reduces bullying.
