DAN PUDER

dan.puder
It was in 2010, that Puder heard of the tragic stories of children and teenagers who committed suicide after suffering from bullying and intimidation. Because of his own childhood experiences from bullying, he felt a personal connection to the situation and knew that something needed to be done to change the mindset of our youth. Rather than saying a few public words, or simply creating a campaign to address the issue, Puder founded the National Anti-Bullying 501(c)3 non-profit program, My Life My Power, which is a complete interactive program and book that is being implemented in schools and after-school programs across the nation. While My Life My Power began with an emphasis on anti-bullying, Puder has since adapted it to address other issues such as suicide and self-mutilation, gang violence, dropouts and truancy, drug and alcohol abuse, childhood obesity, eating disorders, and many others.
