PACER’s “YOU’RE NOT ALONE” CAMPAIGN INSPIRES STUDENTS, ADULTS, AND COMMUNITIES THROUGH CONVERSATION AND EDUCATION
Students who are bullied often say they feel like nobody understands what they are going through, that no one cares, and they feel all alone. Developed by PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center, the “You’re Not Alone: We’re Here for You” campaign was designed to assure young people that they are not alone, that others do care, and they are willing to help. The campaign inspires students, adults, and communities through conversation and education, a classroom activities toolkit, an event toolkit, and an online gallery. Learn more.
