October is Bullying Prevention Month. Learn how bullying can be an obstacle to Latino youth with this video segment from the “Independent Lens” series “The Graduates,” which provides lessons to all students about the importance of empathy and accepting others.

The segment spotlights Juan’s story and the value of arts programs in building self-esteem and community. Students will look at how bullying impacts young Latino students, especially with regards to immigrant, undocumented, racial, socioeconomic, and LGBTQ groups. They will explore how the arts can be a powerful way to bring different voices into dialogue, and how they can be tools for increasing self-esteem and combating stereotypes and negative images.
