PACER is supportive of all persons who desire to be free and safe in their own communities. We are aware of the history of racism and social injustice in this country that needs to be changed. The tragic death of Mr. Floyd has highlighted the injustices in our country. We know that Black children and their families experience significant disparities in education, health, housing, and the justice system. We will work to ensure just systems for all families. We can do better.

I Care Because

Bulling isnt right and people can really get hurt by bulling.I recently had a incident were i tried to get a boy to come fight my friend because of things he had said.But afterwards i realized that it wazent the correct thing to do because someone could have seriously gotten hurt.I can tell you from my experiecne if this ever happens to you to just stay out of the situation because you can get in trouble or someone can get hurt.

I remember being bullied through grade school and High school and always feeling alone. I never knew who my real friends are and who i could trust. I always felt like people who were not bullying me openly pushing me against walls or calling me names were talking about me behind my back and most of the time I was right. Being bullied affected my friendships today not being able to trust anyone and now i don`t let anyone close to me because i don`t want to go through pain again all of this came from being bullied. I don`t want anyone to go through this kids should be able to not worry about who`s talking about them and i hope one day they never will.

I used to get bullied just about everyday up until high school.  It hurts to be picked on and taunted for so long and not know how to deal with it.  I finally started sticking up for myself in the 11th grade.  I went alot of years depressed and upset but I wrote all my problems out and that somehow helped me release pain.  So please stop bullying because its just not cool plus you wouldn't want someone to bully you.

all people should have a dream. People should not be bullied because of the the way they look or act. Your life is yours and you should follow your heart, and not pay attention to what other people think of you. You were given a life to to do what you do best and impact the world. Other people are going to try to bring you down, but you can stand firm in knowing you are special and you do matter. Each person in this world has a purpose so don't let other people change you. You have to be you.
