I Care Because

no one should have to be bullied or outcasted just because they are different. we were'nt made to fitin. we were made to stand out. if we try too hard to fit in then we eventually fade into the background and lose a sense of who we really are. we should use our differences to become people of greatness

bullying is not cool so you should not do it

my son has been bullied for the last two years. I feel like I have him as a parent. It needs to stop. 

Erika, 31, NV

Just two days ago as I was driving, a woman in the car beside me yelled, "FREAK!" as I drove by. This person had no right to call me any name. I've never seen her before in my life, and I probably will never see her again. Not only does bullying from strangers hurt, but it hurts even more when people you thought were your friends bully you to your face, and even behind your back. Words and actions hurt. Even as an adult I am victimized by the way that I dress, my piercings, and my tattoos. An outward appearance does not show the way you are inside. I am a firm believer in bullying prevention and people seeking help because of bullying. Don't ever give up. You're better and stronger than the people bullying you. I love every single one of you.

On Unity Day, students wore orange and participated in a “MIX IT UP” challenge by sitting with someone new at lunch. Learn more>>>

Schools warned on legalities of bullying

Posted: Tuesday, October 28, 2014

By Jane Meredith Adams of EdSource

PACER’s Executive Director Paula F. Goldberg is quoted in an article on EdSource about the recent guidance issued to schools reminding them of their legal responsibility to stop such bullying of children with disabilities or risk violating federal anti-discrimination laws. “The vulnerability of kids with disabilities — a child with Asperger’s, a child who’s deaf, a child with a learning disability” — puts them at increased risk of harm, said Goldberg. “We have to teach kids to respect all kids,” she said. “We have to have kindness.” Read more>>>
