The Diversity & Anti-Bullying Academy (#DABA), is a program of a series of online mini-courses and workshops for parents to learn how and what to teach their kids about bullying and diversity in order to keep their kids safe and empower them to stand up for themselves as well as others.

DABA was created due to Dali and her husband’s personal experience of struggling to get a solution for their then 5-year-old daughter. 

Through that experience, Dali catapulted herself into researching everything possible about bullying. She discovered many obstacles that impede educators, education administrators, and parents from creating an effective solution to end bullying and keep kids safe. Dali also realized that certain policies can hinder the process if parents are unaware of the proper reporting methods. After a few years of sharing her knowledge with other parents, Dali decided to make it into workshops for parents and children. 

Because most bullying education is provided at schools only to children, most parents don’t get access to anti-bullying education. Therefore, #DABA was created for parents so that they…

  • can become better advocates for their children 
  • so that they educate their kids on bullying awareness and 
  •  close the communication gap with their children the school leaders

DABA includes a series of educational resources for parents of children in middle school. Click here to schedule an appointment to learn more about bringing DABA to your organization.
