As part of the San Diego Museum of Man’s new contemporary panel series, Beyond Taking a Stand: Different Ways to Approach the Issue of Bullying will be presented in conjunction with access/ABILITY, an exhibit about disability awareness, and Instruments of Torture, an exhibit that examines torture and how we, as humans, take action against it.
Panelists will present their unique anti-bullying perspectives:

- Lonnie Rowell, associate professor in the counseling program at University of San Diego, will discuss his research on bullying and the work he has done in San Diego to reduce violence and bullying in schools.
- Roddey Reid, interdisciplinary scholar and professor at UC San Diego, will discuss his research about bullying outside of schools and the lifelong effects of repeated bullying.
- Founding and executive members of the high school organization 3V will discuss their inspiration to start an anti-bullying movement in their schools and their ideas to improve social policies about bullying.
