Thank You!

We are grateful to everyone who celebrated and supported National Bullying Prevention Month. Here are a few ideas to carry the momentum forward with year-round involvement:


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.

Prevent bullying, promote kindness

Ask Us!

Questions about bullying? We have answers! Students and K-12 classrooms are invited to send a video or email [email protected] with their question. Starting in January, selected entries will be featured in our weekly “PACERTalks About Bullying” video series.

I Care Because

Bullying can hurt people mentally and have them feel badly about them self. In an extreme case that person could feel so bad that they want to hurt them self or others, which just makes it worse.

I care because i know what it is like to be torn apart or scared. But you have to know that, that person is just one and as long as you dont let it get to you, you can live a long happy life. You just need to know that that persons opinion doesnt matter. I have also seen kids that take out all of the hurt and anger on others, but dont stoop down to their level. Create your own level above eveyone else.

Kylie, 12, Oregon

There is never an excuse for bullying.  There is no excuse for anybody at any age to gossip-it makes people feel bad about themselves and I am a victim of gossip and let me tell everyone-it hurts badly.  
Gossip is bullying and needs to stop.

My little sister has a learning disability she is bullied on a daily basis. I hurt for her everyday because children with special needs struggle with everyday life and school should be an escape for them. Instead these children are made to feel like crap everyday just because they are a little different than eveyone else, but at the end of the day no matter what we are ALL human beings. Since she has became a high school student I take this bullying issue very seriously and sadly the public schools in Chicago don't. Hopefully some time soon bullying will be something very serious all around the world.

Ashley, 21, Chicago, Illinois

I've seen lots of people changed by bullying! Anti-Bullying month is very important to me; to spread the awareness that bullying is only making matters worse. I've been bullied from a young age and It really affects who you are as a person!

Krystal, 12, Australia

My freind Maddy and I were bullied. Maddy was bullied because she went somewhere for extra help and a girl though that she was so dumb that she had to have someone help her work. I was bullied because I wasn't popular. I would want to play a game and they would say that I wasn't popular enough to play. Then the girl that told me I couldn't play would call me names like "Idiot" "dumb head" and she would pick on me. Later the following year she left but her friend were still being mean and bullying me. Last year I started to get better for me but my friends all tranfered schools and I haven't seen any since 5 grade promotion.
