Brave World: Jo Lane Middle School hosts cultural event to help eliminate bullying
ROSEBURG, Ore. -- A middle school in Roseburg is organizing an event to help understand various cultures and eliminate bullying at the same time.
Joseph Lane Middle School is hosting the Brave World International Fair and Assembly, featuring 21 speakers from different countries.
Organizers say they hope to increase appreciation for other cultures.
"I've felt what it feels like to be the cultural outsider and I wanted to make that easier on some kids that are being bullied at my school," said Jo Lane student and event organizer Marin Gray.
The Brave World event is next Monday at Jo Lane in Roseburg.
