“No Bully Zone” Shane Graham and Meredith Prunty team up to spread the anti-bully message

On Sat., June 23, I was able to speak out against bullying at the Splash Ultra Lounge in Boston Massachusetts. It was a great event where I was one of the  celebrity guest speakers along with

Splash Ultra Lounge Anti-Bully Event and Fashion Show

my friend and anti-bully advocate Shane Graham. Together we spread the word that bullying can be stopped and it starts with everyone committing to  zero tolerance. We were also invited to participate in the fashion show and wear some of the top Boston designer outfits while walking the runway. The event was a huge success with ‘Fast’ Freddy Murphy from Mix104.1 CBS Radio hosting and several photographers (WG Digital Images and Mike Egan Photography) and magazine editors from “Isabels” and “Original Living” coming out in support. I have attached the “Press Write-up” as well as some of the pictures from the event. 

Press Release:

Meredith Prunty, 16 year old actress and anti-bully advocate is relentless in her quest to raise awareness about bullying. Meredith is currently one of the busiest young actresses in the New England area with over 13 movies to her credit including role as “Young Lacey” in the movie “Mark of the Dog Rose” and her recent appearance on the films    “Grown Ups 2” and “BackMask”. Despite her busy schedule, Meredith makes it a priority to speak out at every opportunity about bullying. Meredith feels that teens need to stop teens. Being a bystander is not acceptable including when it comes to cyber bullying which is on the rise. No stranger to the media, Meredith has appeared on numerous television interviews, newspaper articles and national publications where she tenaciously spreads the anti-bullying message. In addition, Meredith gained global recognition for her poignant performance as the “Bleeder” in Michael and Marisa’s wildly successful “The Same” anti-bully music video which was seen on sites such as Yahoo! and PBGGoKids. Thousands of fans follow Meredith on Facebook, Twitter and other social media sites creating tremendous social media presence which she uses to effectively promote and communicate anti-bullying awareness. Her loyal fans help Meredith spread the anti-bullying message. A recent article in VIV magazine was shared over 5,000 times and  HCAM news director Michelle Murdock reported that their recent story covering Meredith’s speech at “The Brand UR” rally was the most watched video 3 months in a row.
