Stand for the Silent

Country music artist Morgan Frazier and Stand for the Silent have stopped in Knoxville to bring their anti-bullying message to East Tennessee.

Kirk and Laura Smalley started Stand for the Silent in 2010 after their son Ty committed suicide at age 11 after he was suspended for retaliating against a student who had bullied him for more than two years. Now the couple travels to middle and high school schools encouraging students and communities to take a stand against bullying and spread the message that everybody is somebody.

Morgan Frazier partnered with Stand for the Silent and performs her current single, "Hey Bully" at the organizations events across the country. The song was inspired by Frazier's own experience with being bullied.
