Over two dozen U.S. cities, towns, and counties have issued or are issuing proclamations supporting Freedom from Workplace Bullies Week (October 16-22). The proclamations are the result of outreach by grassroots activists from Healthy Workplace Advocates groups across the country.

These localities are endorsing Freedom Week (list as of Oct. 17, evening):

California:  Beverly Hills, South Lake Tahoe, Torrance, Burbank, Carson, El Dorado County, City of Placerville, Palo Alto

Connecticut:  New London, East Haven, Newtown, Milford, Torrington

Ohio:  Steubenville

Okay, so it’s only a couple of dozen and change. But 10 years ago, this kind of public recognition would’ve been unthinkable. And look at the localities: This is not a blue state or red state cause. Workplace bullying hurts everyone.

(Note: I’m sorry the proclamations are so hard to read. We’re working on that. They sure do look good, though!)

  1. Is it still possible to get a Proclamation if I can’t get to my Mayor before Monday (after the fact?). I would be happy to try and get this done.

    • It likely will be too late to include in any publicity about Freedom Week, but hopefully you can do this next year!
