Bully Proof Solution

Merrie Lynn Ross

 Since 1995 I have worked tirelessly to mitigate the escalating violence in schools nationwide and globally. Collaborating with filmmakers, philanthropists, sponsors, educators, and the Chicago Police Department we created the award-winning Peace Smarts and Morph America curriculum - Impacting 2-million students, teachers,

and parents.

The 7-step transformational problem-solving and solution finding process includes conflict resolution tools, communication skills, creative expression, community service, embracing diversity, and promoting unity in community.
