15-year old SFCM Featured Artist Lizzie Sider is continuing her tour of elementary and middle schools by conducting her Bully Prevention Assembly at over 100 schools during January, February and March of 2014, throughout the entire State of Florida.  The tour continues after a successful weekend in Nashville, where sheperformed the national anthem at the Nashville Predators game before taking the stage at the historic Bluebird Café!

“Bullying doesn’t just happen in October during Bullying Prevention Awareness Month, it happens all year,” says Lizzie 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, Lizzie 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 and how she overcame the teasing.  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, which was launched by PACER in 2006, Sider has already visited over 80 schools in California before starting her school tour in Florida.
