The Bully Zero Australia Foundation was launched on 16 March 2013 after a group of families of bullied victims, senior members of the police force, volunteers, psychologists, lawyers, teachers, politicians and professionals from various backgrounds came together and established the Foundation. It filled a huge gap that existed, as recognised by the Mayor of the City of Moreland at the time, which charities and organisations did not fully cover when responding to tragedies that were a result of bullying.
The Mayor (2010/2011), Oscar Yildiz JP was a passionate advocate against bullying and together with amazing support from Peter Fitz, a communications manager, they led the charge towards the development of recognising bullying in all forms as a crime and as being psychologically harmful. Oscar developed many personal relationships with families who had lost their children to this loathsome behaviour. Through the incomprehensible feelings of destruction and pain he felt from these connections, it drove him to quickly forge a unique group of passionate people with a common goal. The idea of the foundation began right there in his lounge room.
This now is your opportunity to stand up and be part of the solution to help wipe out this abhorrent behaviour.
