Call It Out is a positive prevention program created by nonprofit Beyond Differences to create and nurture inclusive and healthy relationships online. Students learn how to spot social isolation in the online environment and challenges them to think about whether their online behaviors match the positive characteristics of their real-life personality. Marin students, and students across the country, participated in Call It Out Day on April 27.
