About the Tyler Clementi Foundation:
Our mission: The Tyler Clementi Foundation's mission is to end online and offline bullying in schools, workplaces and faith communities.
The Tyler Clementi Foundation is an organization created by the Clementi family which seeks to prevent bullying through inclusion, assertion of dignity and acceptance as a way to honor the memory of Tyler Clementi: a son, a brother and a friend.
In 2010, Tyler’s story became global news, highlighting the impact and consequences of bullying while sparking dialogue amongst parents, teachers, and students across the country. The story also linked to broader issues impacting youth and families such as LGBT inequality, safety in schools, youth in crisis, higher education support systems, and cyberbullying.
