The public is invited to join a conversation about the impacts of bullying, and what’s happening in the community at a special event Wednesday evening.

WISC-TV, Dean Clinic and Madison Public Library are hosting a free screening of the award-winning documentary, “Bully.”  There will be a discussion afterward with the audience and area experts. WISC-TV’s Susan Siman will be moderating.

The screening is part of the Time for Kids: Buddy Project, a year-long initiative and series of reports dedicated to the topic of bullying and ways to stop it.

The screening is the third in a series and begins at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 23, at Central Library in downtown Madison. Attendees will also be given an opportunity to take the “Be A Buddy, Not A Bully” pledge and those who do so will be given orange, anti-bullying wristbands.

A fourth screening – moderated by WISC-TV’s Jennifer Hoff – will be shown at 1 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 2 at Meadowridge Library on Madison’s west side.
