PORTLAND, Ore. (March 4, 2013) – Rookie guard Damian Lillard, along with the Portland Trail Blazers and their partners Les Schwab Tire Centers and adidas have tipped off a regional anti-bullying campaign that encourages everyone to stand up for the rights of others and formally pledge to show respect for all people. “We all come from different backgrounds. I think it’s important for everyone, especially kids, to show respect to each other,” said Lillard. “I’ve lived in three completely different communities and have seen bullying firsthand. If I can make a difference and help kids be more aware of their actions, that’s a big deal for me. I want to be a part of that.”
