PEORIA-People are rallying against bullying in the River City today.
The Center for Prevention of Abuse hosted thousands of students this morning at Peoria Chiefs Stadium.
The center says bullying is becoming more common but it doesn't have to be that way.
Center for Prevention of Abuse, Jeanne Anders said, "Bullying does not have to be part of a school day. If we can all stand up and support each other, then we can make schools to be a safe place where children can learn and thrive at their full potential.
Schools from as far away as Chicago were at today's rally.
