Lizzie Sider is continuing her tour of elementary and middle schools in Florida where she is conducting her Bully Prevention Assembly at over 100 schools during January, February and March. The tour continues after a successful weekend in Nashville, where Sider performed the national anthem at the Nashville Predators game before taking the stage at the historic Bluebird Cafe.
“Bullying doesn’t just happen in October during Bullying Prevention Awareness Month, it happens all year,” says Sider. “As someone who understands what it is like to be bullied, I am on a mission to help anyone who doesn’t think anyone will listen.”
During the 30- to 40-minute assembly, Sider will encourage kids to help prevent bullying as she recounts her own personal journey as a young student being teased and ridiculed in elementary school, what it felt like, and how she tried to deal with it. In addition, Sider discusses the importance of everyone standing up to stop bullying. She will also perform her original song “Butterfly,” which Sider co-wrote about her experience. Her goal is to help kids as a positive role model, having risen above her own ridicule, to pursue a career in music.
As a spokesperson for PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center, Sider visited over 80 schools in California before starting her school tour in Florida.
