Jodee Blanco is the voice of America’s bullied, author of The New York Times bestseller Please Stop Laughing at Me . . . and the award winning sequel Please Stop Laughing at Us . . .

Survivor, expert and activist Jodee Blanco is one of the country’s pre-eminent voices on the subject of bullying. She is the author of The New York Times bestselling memoir, Please Stop Laughing At Me . . . One Woman’s Inspirational Story. A chronicle of her years as the student outcast, the book inspired a movement among bullying victims everywhere of all ages--in middle and high schools, on college campuses, at the workplace, and at home, who fill auditoriums and gymnasiums coast to coast to hear Blanco speak on how they too can reclaim their dignity and their lives. Referred to by many as “the anti-bullying bible,” it is required reading in hundreds of middle and high schools and numerous universities and professional organizations throughout the country.

Blanco has successfully intervened in many bullying related attempted suicides and acts of victim retaliation, ranging from desperate, lonely teens with “hit lists;” badly treated employees at the end of their rope wanting to “end it all,” and burnt-out guidance counselors who can’t cope anymore; to grief-stricken parents unable to move on . These people open up to Blanco because they see in her a kindred spirit, someone who’s willing to crawl down inside the hole where they’re trapped and guide them out the same way she did for herself.

Blanco has been helping the misunderstood, ostracized, and forgotten reclaim that right across America every day. Since the release of Please Stop Laughing At Me . . ., she has committed her life to turning her pain into purpose. Inspired by the thousands of letters and requests she receives for help, she travels around the country sharing her story of forgiveness and triumph. One of the most sought?after keynote/motivational speakers and seminar presenters, Blanco’s talks are redefining the scope of possibilities for curbing suffering in our schools, corporations, and communities worldwide.
