Founded in 2006, PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center unites, engages and educates communities nationwide to address bullying through creative, relevant and interactive resources.

PACER offers digital-based resources for parents, schools, teens and youth, including:
PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Month—October
PACER is the founder of National Bullying Prevention Month, held annually in October. 2013 marks the eighth anniversary of PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Month, which unites communities nationwide to raise awareness of bullying prevention through events, activities and education.
During National Bullying Prevention Month—and throughout the year—the community is encouraged to use these creative resources to engage, educate and inspire others to join the movement.

PACER is staffed primarily by parents of children with disabilities.
With assistance to individual families, workshops, materials for parents and professionals, and leadership in securing a free and appropriate public education for all children, PACER's work affects and encourages families in Minnesota and across the nation.
