HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

The University of Southern Mississippi partnered with Dream of Hattiesburg to launch a Twitter campaign to end cyber bullying in the Pine Belt.

Professor of Journalism Gina Chen along with several students created a hashtag called #itstartswithus (It starts with us) to lead over 120 7th and 8th graders in the fight to end online bullying.

Students from the Mass Communications and Journalism Department at USM also volunteered with the foundation.

To join the campaign, follow Dream of Hattiesburg at @DreamHubCity on Twitter using the hashtag #itstartswithus.
