SEATTLE, June 8, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, anti-bullying organization Bystander Revolution announced that Monica Lewinsky has joined the team as an ambassador and strategic advisor in its fight against bullying.
"My experience of having been cyber-bullied and shamed for nearly two decades has given me a unique perspective. Having come out on the other side, I want to help other victims of the shame game survive and thrive," Lewinsky said. "I am proud to join Bystander Revolution as part of my mission to help shift the culture – both online and off – toward one of compassion, instead of bullying, humiliation and harassment."
Bystander Revolution's mission is to inspire individuals to take the power out of bullying with simple acts of kindness, courage, and inclusion. The organization provides a platform for people to share and discover tips on how to deal with various forms of bullying, disseminates advice and inspiration through outreach over social media, and encourages action through its upcoming Weekly Stand initiative, a weekly call-to-action to a list of volunteers. Its goal is a culture shift – a revolution in simple habits of compassionate action to defuse the global epidemic of bullying.
"Bullying and cyberbullying cause so much suffering, and everyone would like to see the culture change," said MacKenzie Bezos, Bystander Revolution's Founder and Executive Director. "The good news is there are so many small things individuals can do that have a huge impact. Monica is an inspiring and passionate advocate for a shift toward a culture of compassionate action. We are thrilled to have her join us in our efforts."
