We are a group of volunteers and organizations who worked together to raise money to ship a donation of three tons of the book, The Bullying Antidote: Superpower Your Kids for Life, and disperse all 3000 copies throughout Oakland. With this resource, parents can collectively gain a deeper understanding of bullyng dynamics,  learn stronger positivity skills, and more successfully prevent Adverse Childhood Experiences for the next generation. By creating reading groups, parents can learn a common language of compassionate solutions that will unify and uplift our diverse community. Supporting each other, parents can build literacy, community, and a higher sense of well-being that will create a stronger culture of capability and connection in families and schools alike. This well-researched book was written by Oakland parents and informed by local schools, showing how our strengths can provide solutions to a global and deeply rooted historical problem.
