Maryland's gay-supportive governor, Martin O'Malley, will visit a high school in his state on Thursday for a special event commemorating National Bullying Prevention Month.
O'Malley will be joined by Maryland First Lady Judge Katie O'Malley, as well as representatives from Facebook and the Cartoon Network, at Arundel High School in Anne Arundel County. "At the kick-off, the Governor and First Lady will encourage students, parents, communities, and schools to stand up against bullying by taking the 'Stop Bullying: Speak Up' pledge," according to a press release.
Fighting bullying has been an important issue for the O'Malleys, who filmed a public service announcement on the issue; the First Lady also filmed a video for the "It Gets Better" campaign for gay youth. Watch both below.
