Premiering at PACER’s Annual Benefit on May 11, 2019, this video features Paula Goldberg, PACER’s Executive Director, sharing the behind-the-scenes story which set in motion the 2006 creation of PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center.


Bullying Prevention 101

We have teamed up with Planet Fitness’ Judgement Free Generation® initiative to develop “Bullying Prevention 101,” a free educational resource designed to equip teachers, counselors and other educators with tools to empower students to prevent bullying and stand up for kindness. This comprehensive online module provides resources and engaging activities designed to help students develop the skills to advocate for their peers, whether you are just beginning the bullying prevention conversation in your school or taking further steps to spread kindness. The material is available for elementary, middle, and high school students.

I Care Because

I know bullying can be a traumatic experience and can occur on numerous fronts. No matter what, there is somebody that will be there for you. Sometimes these people may not be as clear at first, but, find somebody to talk too. I know that I have been able to help friends and family in the past because at the end of the day all they needed was somebody to talk to, and as a result the bonds that with those people that I have made are unforgettable. You're not a lone. Stay strong.

I belive that people bully because it makes them feel better about themselves and to try to fit in with the other kids that think its cool. i think its wrong. i have been through bulling and its not fun. i think that who ever is bulling that they should look in the mirror and think to themselves "Y do i make someone elses life hard?"

i want to help others like me.I want them to know that they are not alone.
right know i am studying to be a social worker which i know can help make a change about bullying.
i hope there is also an agency which is open for bully victims ,which they can develop themselves through the help of persons  that was also like them.I was dreaming to help people like me by building an agency in each schools that can care and protect each bully victim from the ridicule of others.

I was bullied terribly for 5 years, and I know what it's like and it's awful. To fall into depression, and self - harm. Stay Strong <3

no one really understands how it feeks to be bullied until it happens to them, its not fair on the people that have to go through it no matter who they are, it has to stop, we cannot give the bullies the satisfaction of getting to us and bringing us down
