York Mayor Kim Bracey helped deliver an anti-bullying message at a city elementary school Thursday.
Bracey lunched with students who then signed pledges promising not to bully others and to help those who are bullied.
Bracey said she is passionate about the cause, as she was bullied as a child herself.
“Your hope to see your mom’s car come around the corner early because she got off early and she could come pick you up and you don’t have to be punched in the head as you are walking home from school,” Bracey remembered.
At an anti-bullying conference at William Penn High School Thursday night, Bracey said statistics show one in three students will be bullied at some point.
