MILFORD, OH (FOX19) - A 10-year old is trying to raise awareness about bullying in and around Milford.
Alexis Walter recently presented the Milford City Council's Administrative Service with a presentation on becoming an Upstander to End the Trend of Bullying.
Alexis will ask all of Council to pass the resolution on Tuesday, May 21.
Alexis says that bullying is not just a school issue, but a neighborhood issue. She hopes that by raising awareness, parents and educators will listen more and help those who are victims.
"If more kids speak up and support the victim more than the one doing the bullying, we can put an end to this trend. Just because someone is different doesn't mean you should be mean to them."
Alexis has created a Facebook page to help raise awareness https://www.facebook.com/becomeanupstanderandendthetrend
