Grass-Roots Anti-Bullying Campaign, The REVolution, Launches with Bandstand Park Kick-Off Event

LYNDON – The REVolution, a grass-roots anti-bullying campaign, held a kick-off event at Bandstand Park on Sunday. The group’s co-founders, Adrianne Hutchin and Laura Wayne, chose a high-profile Main Street location to announce the crusade to the community at large. Hutchin and Wayne, mothers of children who have been bullied in local schools, formed The REVolution as a long-term, multi-year push to enact comprehensive anti-bullying legislation. State Rep. Scott Beck (R-St. Johnsbury) was on hand Sunday and said he supports the group’s goals. Area educators were also in attendance. Through the REVolution, state lawmakers can receive community feedback to draft more effective legislation.
