This week’s Badass Chick is Alex Martinez, creator of the Bully Project, which uses pledge cards to bring the end of bullying.
For the past four and a half years, Alex has been working with victims of crime. Similarly, her brother works with the children of Massachusetts’ Department of Children and Families. Through those combined experiences, she sees the full extent to which children are bullied, and she’s seeking an end to it.
Alex has created anti-bullying pledge cards and has reached out to police departments, mental health organizations, District Attorneys and YMCAs to distribute them. The goal is to get everyone in the community mindful of their responsibility to work together to end bullying. In fact, Alex has reached out to so many organizations that even the Mayor of Worcestor has applauded her efforts. She is working state by state and hopes that, in time, she will be able to take the Bully Project nationwide.
Alex Martinez is my Badass Chick of the Week for standing up for what she believes in and trying to make the world a better place!
