Alexa became passionate about the cause of anti bullying in elementary school. She came off the bus one day in 2nd grade in tears because kids were throwing dirt on a child with special needs and told her mom who quickly told the principal. She was happy that the behavior that had gone on for a while had stopped.
When Alexa was 10 and activity working as an actress in NYC, she became aware of an organization by the name of Free2luv. Many of her friends were becoming spokespeople for them. Alexa was already interested in the cause so she quickly took the pledge and became an advocate for the organization. She made PSA’s for them and took pictures with people wherever she could with their signs that say “Rock Love Not Hate” or “Friends Don't Let Friends Bully”.
