Nassau County Legislator Joshua Lafazan (D–Woodbury) recently joined Nassau County Executive Laura Curran and Long Island Coalition Against Bullying (LICAB) founder and Executive Director Joe Salamone outside the Theodore Roosevelt Executive & Legislative Building to recognize National Bullying Prevention Month by lighting the dome and pillars of the Legislature building.

“We are so honored to one again commemorate October as Anti-Bullying Prevention Month across Long Island and especially here in Nassau County with our third annual dome lighting. We thank County Executive Curran and Legislator Lafazan for their continuing support for our children,”  said Salamone. “While COVID-19 has created many impacts to our students, as it has to all of us throughout this year, one thing it did not do is remove bullying as an issue they face. It is more important than ever to make sure our children have the resources they need to prevent, cope with and overcome bullying.”

LICAB and Salamone were key partners in Lafazan’s successful push in 2018 to launch www.NassauStopBullying.org, the county’s bullying prevention resource website. For additional information and resources, visit www.licab.org.

“We must never lose sight of the fact that, because of the ubiquitous nature of technology and social media in young peoples’ lives, bullies can haunt their victims more readily than ever before,” Lafazan said. “At a time when the COVID-19 pandemic has acutely enflamed mental health challenges across all age groups, I stand proudly with County Executive Curran and advocates like Joseph Salamone to ensure that no child is allowed to suffer in silence at the hands of a bully.”
