Pop Culture Anti-Bullying Coalition at C2E2
The Pop Culture Anti-Bullying Coalition will present three panels and an off-site mixer for celebrities, press and fans this weekend at C2E2. The event is expected to garner major celebrity participation and press. Several national non-profits with anti-bullying initiatives, including the Anti-Defamation League, are partnering with the Coalition at C2E2, in addition to local organizations. The coalition was formed by actress Chase Masterson and award-winning author Carrie Goldman.
The Coalition and C2E2 will sponsor the “I Am” Campaign, photographing celebrities and fans with an “I Am” sign, on which they write an assertive fact about themselves. Celebrities including Stan Lee (“I Am Stan the Man”), Hulk Hogan (“I Am Content), Seth Green (“I Am a Red-Headed Weirdo”), William Shatner, Felicia Day, Greg Grunberg, and Chase Masterson (“I Am Making a Stand for All of Us”) participated in this Campaign at New York Comic-Con.
