Tina Long lost her son Tyler to peer abuse driven bullycide when he was just 17-years-old. To honor Tyler and all those that are dealing with bullying, she started a 501c3 called Everything Starts with 1. Our story is told in the film Bully that received many awards and premiered in theaters nationwide. ESW1 believes that your voice is the most powerful tool. We also believe that our youth hold the key to the future, and we must support, educate, and empower them to help us create preventions and solutions. Leave a legacy that you can be proud of. Don’t let your voice fall silent. Help us save lives. Tyler’s story has been told at schools, churches, organizations, The Ellen Show, 20/20, Sean Hannity, and even the White House.

As Tyler’s dad states in the film Bully– “Everything starts with 1 and builds up. If we can increase in numbers, then we have an army, and we can defeat anything.”

Bully, produced and directed by Sundance Film Festival and Emmy award winning director and producer, Lee Hirsch.
Following five kids and families over the course of a school year, Bully confronts bullying’s most tragic outcomes, including the stories of two families who’ve lost children to suicide and a mother who waits to learn the fate of her 14 –year-old daughter, incarcerated after bringing a gun on her school bus. With rare access to the Sioux City Community School District, the film also gives an intimate glimpse into school busses, classrooms, cafeterias and even principle’s offices, offering insight into the often cruel world of children, as teachers, administrators and parents struggle to find answers.
