ING Invited to Presidential Inauguration
In response to an invitation from the White House for the upcoming inauguration and in honor of President Obama’s work on bullying prevention, we are heading to Washington D.C. next Monday. Representing ING are our Affiliate leaders Shakila Ahmed, Zehra Wamiq, and Zulfat Suara, who will attend inaugural events, including the swearing-in, parade, and ball. What an honor!
We also recognize that this administration has made bullying a real priority in the national discourse through national conferences and convenings in which ING representatives participated, restatements of policies sent to school districts against bullying, and the launch ofwww.stopbullying.gov. This is an issue close to ING’s heart, as we shared our own resources on bullying this last year for students, parents, and educators. We are comforted that the administration feels equally compelled to counter bullying in our schools.
