MEDFORD, Ore. -- Several speakers and community members gathered at the Rogue Valley Country Club on Tuesday night for an event called "Ending Bullying."

The event was hosted by "The Protectors," a non-profit organization dedicated to raising awareness about bullying and how to prevent it.   

The event addressed several aspect of bullying, including how to identify bullying, myths and stereotypes, and solutions.         

Several presenters spoke at the event including local community leaders and people who have been directly affected by bullying.      

Coordinators held the event with hope that it will give local educators, parents, and community members the knowledge and tools to eliminate bullying in the area.      

One of the speakers was Dr. Paul Gausman, the superintendent of Sioux City School District in Iowa. A few years ago, Dr. Gausman allowed a bullying documentary to be filmed inside his schools. Since then, he has spoken about bullying all over the country, including the White House.

"Bullying is everywhere. It's not a school based problem, but a community problem. You see bullying in shopping malls, movie theaters, churches, sporting events, and all of those things. Schools are simply a mirror of the community they serve," said Dr. Gausman.
