WBC launches World Champions Against Bullying

The Sulaiman Family, and WBC Word Boxing Cares are announcing a new program, World Champions Against Bullying. WBC President Jose Sulaiman, newly appointed Ambassador to the Non Violence Foundation, called for immediate action and support.

“This, much needed initiative, headed by Harris Haith, Coylette James and Roy Foreman, has been organized in response to the rising number of harassment incidents among our children. It is our conviction that children will respond to our champions; many of whom have come from difficult circumstances to take their place with the best in our society,” said President Sulaiman.
