With his wife, Travis created Backdown Bully to unite a community of parents, youth and schools to eliminate bullying. Their Facebook, Twitter, and other social media platforms provide resources and a place to hear/share stories to ignite empowerment & advocacy.

After months of telling teachers, administrators and the district with inadequate responses, the family posted a video on Facebook to get help for herself and other students who are bullied.
