Earlier this summer, a bill was passed by New York lawmakers to establish a cohort to study cyberbullying in the state. The nine-member task force includes experts from the fields of child psychology, mental health, technology, among others, to combat online bullying. The goal of the group is to study cyberbullying among teens and identify solutions to stop it. By July 2023, the group will present a report of its findings to policymakers. “The scourge of cyberbullying knows no geographic, ethnic, racial, religious, social or political boundaries and its devastating impact on young people has only increased, particularly during the pandemic as everyone spent more time online,” Assemblywoman Didi Barrett said.
