About the Anti-Bullying Coalition. NYPCC has been a pioneer in addressing bullying. We established the first anti-bullying coalition in the Bronx to create awareness of the signs of bullying, help children and parents learn strategies to deal with the problem, and connect families with support resources. This led to the very first annual Anti-Bullying Fair in the area. Due to the fair’s success, it is now an annual event.
