This month, PUBLIC SQUARE engages in a candid discussion about the growing problem of bullying and what is being done to stop it.

Victims of bullying, parents, advocates, education officials, and policy leaders join PUBLIC SQUARE’S new host, Megan Kamerick, in a riveting dialogue.

  • R.J. Mitte, an actor on “Breaking Bad,” a television series filmed in New Mexico, joins the community panel to talk about how he was bullied.
  • Detective Brian Schamber shares an emotional story of how bullying impacted him and still has repercussions on him today.
  • Guests also include State Representative Rick Miera, Kristine Meurer, Director of the Public Education Departments School and Family Support Bureau, and Tonna Burgos, Executive Director of Student Services at Rio Rancho Public Schools.

Funding for PUBLIC SQUARE was provided in part by a grant from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.
