Assemblyman Andrew Raia takes a question from a student reporter at his April 16 simulated press conference.
“My thanks to Commack, Deer Park, Half Hollow Hills East, Huntington, North Babylon, and West Islip high schools for covering my April 16 press conference,” said Raia. “Cyberbullying is a real danger to young people today. Currently, New York is still one of nine states with no anti-bullying laws on the books. In participating in the April 16 cyberbullying press conference, I hope these budding journalists took away both a valuable experience as well as vital information about the fight to prevent online bullying and harassment among students.”
