"Voices Against Bullying," which is currently comprised of about 20 parents, will address the Kanawha County school board at its regular meeting June 13.
The issue is crucial not only for the students being bullied, Anderson said, but for the bullies.
"It's a lose-lose situation," she said. "The kids who are bullies also have something going on with them and we need to get to that issue, too. The bullies need help too."
Anderson said at the heart of the anti-bullying group is a need for camaraderie - an opportunity for students and parents to feel like they're not alone in their struggles.
"A lot of kids we talk to have written suicide notes or have those feelings, and we want to try to get things in perspective so that they don't have to take their lives or feel like they're the only kids that feel that way," she said. "They are not in this by themselves."
