MINEOLA — Young people stood with Nassau County Executive Laura Curran, Nassau County Police Commissioner Patrick Ryder, and several legislators to support an anti-bullying bill that was signed into law Wednesday.

Legislator Josh Lafazan sponsored the bill which created nassaustopbullying.org, a site that will be filled with bullying prevention resources and information for those who feel they are being bullied.

"At a time when our conversations have shifted from in person to social media, we have never been so interconnected yet so removed," Lazafan said.

The legislation got bipartisan support and was approved by the legislature on Monday. The Long Island Coalition Against Bullying has pledged $10,000 for a public service announcement promoting the website.

Officials said the site should be up and running by the beginning of the 2018 to 2019 school year.
