Group pushes for tougher anti-bullying laws in Minnesota

January 31, 2014 Updated Feb 11, 2014 at 12:58 PM CST

Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) - The push for tougher anti-bullying laws in Minnesota is gaining momentum as lawmakers get ready to head back to the Capitol.

Friday night, the group Outfront Minnesota held a Happy Hour event at the Duluth Flame Nightclub to spread awareness about the measure.

The Supportive Minnesota Schools Act would require schools to develop detailed anti-bullying policies.

Right now, the state's anti-bullying law is spelled out with just 37 words.

Outfront Minnesota will hold an anti-bullying summit and rally in St. Paul in March.
