TORONTO, August 3 /CNW/ - The "Book of Respect", part of Brandon Street's anti-bullying initiative, was unveiled July 21, 2010 at Union Station. This symbolic book is dedicated to those who lost their lives due to bullying. It promotes respect in schools, in families, youth, and the workplace.
This book stands 3' x 4' with blank pages awaiting autographs and comments from Torontonians about respect and bullying. Mayoral candidate, Joe Pantalone, was first to sign the unveiled book. Over 150 people joined the cause and signed the book the same day. The book will travel the GTA collecting the signatures of citizens pledging to take a stand against bullying, spreading the message of respect.
Brandon Street is hosting general and corporate conferences this fall promoting respect in schools and the workplace. The Anti Bullying Forum will take place September 19th at the Glen Gould Studio CBC and the Respect Initiative Conference at the Toronto Board of Trade, November 5th. Brandon Street will also host the first Respect Rewards Gala November 8 honoring those who demonstrated the highest level of respect and continue to work to create bully-free environments.
Brandon Street CDF is a charity that seeks to bridge businesses with communities to provide development, mentoring and progressive opportunities to children, youth and families in Toronto.
