DURHAM, N.H. (AP) -- About 3,500 middle and high school students and teachers from across the state are taking part in a rally at the University of New Hampshire against all forms of bullying.
The event Friday morning, called STAND UP New Hampshire, is featuring speeches from Gov. Maggie Hassan and others, performances, a student-led caucus, awards, and other presentations.
The event is taking place at The Whittemore Center.
Hassan has declared next week "anti-bullying" week" in the state. It is believed to be the first designation of its kind by a New Hampshire governor.
