Latino kids being bullied more amid political controversy, groups say
Leaders of Latino service organizations say such statements have been heard more often in metro Atlanta schools since the November presidential election.
Latino youths in metro Atlanta are being harassed and bullied more since the Nov. 8 vote, say officials with Norcross-based CETPA, a mental health and substance abuse services organization.
National reports also cite an increase in hate incidents against Hispanic children.
“We have seen after the election a spike in the number of kids reporting they’re being harassed . . . being called bad names,” says Belisa Urbina, executive director of Ser Familia, which supports Latino families in metro Atlanta.
Urbina says her own granddaughter, a citizen, was harassed in a Paulding County elementary school.
