This is part of the Be a STAR anti-bullying alliance, co-founded by WWE & The Creative Coalition. WWE & The Creative Coalition launched the anti-bullying alliance, Be a STAR (Show Tolerance & Respect), to provide students with positive tools to prevent bullying in their schools & communities. The mission of Be a STAR is to ensure a positive and equitable social environment for everyone regardless of age, race, religion or sexual orientation through education & awareness.
