In May 2012, a 7-year-old Michigan boy, alleged to have been bullied based on his gender, committed suicide. The suicide created outrage and widespread concern among community members, including parents, teachers, students, civil rights leadership, the Michigan Parent Teachers Association, and the city's Children's Center. It also renewed concerns among lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGTB) advocates, who had experienced several anti-gay bullying suicides in the past several years. In July 2012, CRS convened a series of meetings with the Michigan Parent Teachers Association, the Children's Center, the local Police Department, the U.S. Attorney's Office for Civil Rights, Equality Michigan, and other community partners, who later participated in a CRS-facilitated hate crimes, bullying, and harassment community dialogue. CRS also helped the parties develop a Community Resolution Call to Action - a commitment to provide community-wide anti-bullying education and awareness to parents and students in neighborhoods and schools in the city.
