A Message From Albany County District Attorney David Soares


"Be more than a bystander. You can speak up and speak out against bullying whenever you see it. What you don’t say speaks volumes for you. It also speaks volumes about you. I’m asking you to take a stand against bullying. Taking a stand against bullying means you should tell a family member, teacher, counselor, or friend whenever you see someone being isolated, threatened, or hurt. Be more than bystander. The words we chose matter, use your words to make a difference."

-Albany County District Attorney David Soares
