Become a Champion Against Bullying

These organizations are eligible to submit the names of their nonprofits, schools, or community group, which will be posted to PACER’s bullying prevention website, along with links to their sites and an overview of their bullying prevention efforts. They also have access to PACER’s bullying prevention resources, including exciting new activities, information, and contests that will engage youth, educators, and parents in creating a safer world for children with and without disabilities.

Champions are invited to distribute information about National Bullying Prevention Month through their print and electronic newsletters. Become a champion in PACER’s annual National Bullying Prevention Month and join this expanded effort to reach schools and organizations nationwide.  We appreciate their community leadership and dedication to helping all children.

NY Hinterlands The Musical Meet Paul. He’s 16. He’s into theoretical physics. He lives in the middle of nowhere. And he’s gay. Being a scrawny, queer science nerd practically makes him a bully magnet. And as the harassment piles up, Paul contemplates taking his own life. In THE HINTERLANDS, a six-part musical miniseries, Paul struggles to keep his head above water as he confronts intolerance, his sexuality and the rocky path of adolescence. We wanted to respond to the issue of gay bullying in a way that would help kids like Paul understand that they're incredibly valuable members of our human community and that they are inherently worthy of love and compassion. The Hinterlands is our attempt to help all bullied young people find and embrace their own innate worthiness NOW, despite the onslaught of hatred they must survive every day.

NY "Can't Bully Me Now" Musical "Can't Bully Me Now" is an hour long hands-on anti-bullying musical. I was inspired by a family member of mine to write the musical. He was violently bullied on the school bus, all because a few bullies felt they could take his slice of pizza. He was held down in the seat and punched repeatedly. The bullies told him that he "just had to take it". I was angry and saddened to hear about it and I said "NO WAY", he does NOT have to take it! Can't Bully Me Now was written for him and all victims of bullying. I was teased myself as a child and I never forgot it! I was always picked last in gym class by my classmates. Kids also laughed at my hand-me-down clothes and outdated hairstyles. It was time for me to do something about it and make a difference! There are 3 acts and five songs in the musical that help teach youth how to combat bullying and the importance of kindness, compassion, empathy, and respect. Hear the story behind the musical:
