Cyberbullying is any unwanted, aggressive online behavior that is intentionally hurtful and targeted. It may or may not include a power-dynamic or discrimination based on race/ethnicity, nationality, gender, sexuality, ability, body size/shape faith, or any other difference and it can result in feelings of humiliation, shame, or embarrassment.

Tyler's Story

In 2011, the Tyler Clementi Foundation was founded by the Clementi family to prevent bullying through inclusion and the assertion of dignity and acceptance as a way to honor the memory of Tyler: a son, a brother, and a friend.

Not only do we continue to carry the important message about the suicide risk facing many LGBT youth, who can be three to seven times more at risk for suicide than other youth, but also our message of standing up to bullying speaks universally across all cultures and identities.
