“Breaking the Silence” – Putting an end to bullying


The “Breaking the Silence” film premiere took place Thursday night at the Hoboken Historical Museum in Hoboken.

Filmmaker Frank Gigante brought his anti-bullying docu-fiction to his hometown to continue to combat the epidemic of bullying on our kids and teens in schools.

Experts and victims of bullying bravely shared their thoughts and personal experiences on how we can stop this killing of our kids.

Jane and Joe Clementi were on hand to add their special input on using technology how it was meant to be used, instead of as a weapon.

The resounding message was it’s so important to raise awareness of bullying…

Inspire others, teach friends about being tolerant… create events in your school and community.

Stand up, speak up but don’t give up.

Join the fight…
