About 30 sixth through eighth grade students from all over Green Country learned that doing nothing is not an option.

The Girl Scouts of Eastern Oklahoma put on the workshop Saturday to give the girls the tools to fight back.

"It's also a lot about relationship building and that we need to take care of people in our community and take care of our friends and neighbors and just be helpful," program manager Celeste Franklin said.

The big message the Girl Scouts wanted these girls to walk away with is that if they see someone being bullied, speak up.
