A family youth rally is planned for Aug. 24 in Stettler to champion anti-bullying efforts.

The picnic at West Stettler Park is scheduled to begin at 2 p.m. a week from this Saturday.

Among the scheduled speakers are bullying victim Mackenzie Murphy of Airdrie and her mother, Tara Murphy, along with the late Amanda Todd’s mother, Carol.
