Bullied Teen Advocate Caleb Laieski Meets President Obama and Vice President Biden

Caleb Laieski became a national advocate for anti-bullying, LGBT rights, and suicide prevention after being bullied and losing a close friend of his to suicide.

Mr. Laieski lived in Arizona at the time and at the age of 16, he took his fight to Washington, D.C., where he met with over 200 staffers and members of Congress.

This later resulted in Mr. Laieski meeting and being recognized for his work by President Barack Obama and Vice President Biden.
