We Dine Together: A Student-Led Movement to Combat Bullying
May 9, 2018
Uniting Students and Forming Friendships at the Table
Bullying and teen suicide are two of the most pervasive problems that our youth are facing today; this is the story of two organizations uniting to foster an inclusive atmosphere for students who feel isolated.
We Dine Together, a completely student-led movement, was founded by high school student Denis Estimon, who felt isolated, especially at lunch, when he moved to the U.S. from Haiti in first grade. Estimon and the We Dine Alone organization believe that the foundation of these issues stems from an overwhelming sense of unhappiness from feelings of loneliness and isolation.
By uniting and empowering students to create inclusive environments, We Dine Together believes that long-lasting relationships can be built over the table. As We Dine Together grew, it partnered with Be Strong, a national nonprofit focused on preventing bullying.
