Since 2010, Cartoon Network's anti-bullying campaign has empowered kids and shed light on the effects of bullying through Facebook, documentaries, television PSAs and more. Last week, Cartoon Network and U.S. Senator Bob Casey joined forces to launch the next phase of its Stop Bullying: Speak Up movement – a national flag-raising campaign. Along with Senator Casey, Level Up stars Connor Del Rio and Aimee Carrero and Cartoon Network President and COO Stuart Snyder joined the students and faculty of Warren G. Harding Middle School in Philadelphia, PA, to raise the first of more than 2,000 Stop Bullying flags.

In addition to Cartoon Network, CNN's Anderson Cooper has long been a stout supporter of the anti-bullying movement. And tomorrow night, a year after the ground-breaking Bully documentary was released, The Bully Effect: An Anderson Cooper Special will take a look at how the controversial documentary has affected three subjects of Bully (Alex Libby, Kelby Johnson and Kirk Smalley) as well as filmmaker Lee Kirsch.
See The Bully Effect trailer below.
If you miss the premiere of The Bully Effect (February 28 at 10 p.m. ET on CNN), the Anderson Cooper special will re-air at 8 p.m. on March 3 and again on March 9.
