Former Green Bay Packer shares anti-bullying message with La Crosse students

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - LeRoy Butler, who played for the Green Bay Packers his entire career from 1990-2001, will bring his "Butler vs. Bullying" campaign to La Crosse tomorrow.

The campaign has reached over 20 schools and organizations and worked with over 6,000 students in its first year.

Butler has traveled to schools and organizations throughout Wisconsin over the past year, to sit with those who have been bullied and those with a bullying nature. Butler brings awareness to the problem, has open discussions and finds a positive resolution.

"This approach allows the kids to learn to be leaders and not followers,” said Butler. “This problem cannot be ignored any longer and it is our goal to provide a place for these kids to feel free to open up about the problem and be a leader in helping us solve this issue."

Sponsored by Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield and the La Crosse Public Education Foundation, the “Butler vs. Bullying” campaign will visit two School District of La Crosse schools tomorrow, November 15. The campaign will first stop at Logan High School at 9:00 a.m. and then visit Lincoln Middle School at 10:45 a.m.
