Logan West to co-host the No Bully Tour & support the Karen Klein Foundation
New York, NY, October 1 2012 – An advocate of anti-bullying, Miss Teen USA Logan West will stand up for those who have been bullied and raise awareness throughout the month of October, National Bullying Prevention Month, and beyond. Joining forces with Karen Klein, the upstate New York bus monitor who was brutally bullied by students, West will co-host a musical concert tour entitled No Bully Tour. The tour will travel along the east coast throughout October featuring artists whose music and lyrics are dedicated to celebrating people’s differences and encouraging positive change.
West admits to being bullied growing up and, like Klein, turned her negative experience into a positive by creating her own anti-bullying program, “Bully Proof,” which she introduced in her home state. Taking the program throughout Connecticut, she reached nearly 20,000 students and helped pass Act 211A which requires school faculty to be properly trained on how to identify and manage bullying. West plans to use her platform as Miss Teen USA to take the program to a national level.
Stops along the tour that Logan West will co-host:
Saturday, October 13:
- FYE Store at 100 Broad Street, Philadelphia, PA from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. – Saturday, October 27:
- The Great Hall in Union Station at 1 Union Station, Hartford, CT from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.
