Dozens of First Coast residents joined First Coast News for the Anti Bully Boot Camp at the Jacksonville Museum of Science and History Saturday.
Participants and organizers at MOSH shared ideas about how to respond to bullying -- at school and in the workplace.
The event attracted local author Deon Davis, who took up the cause after hearing about bullying victims committing suicide.
Davis says her book "Beanie and the Bully" was inspired by her niece, who died of cancer at age 16.
Davis told First Coast News she plans to write seven more books in the series -- as a way to teach children about the pitfalls of bullying.
