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

i always been bullied

esme, 15,

We shouldn't need a reason to care. We all should just out of the kindness of who we are. 

To anyone that has been bullied...
Never give in you're not alone.
In the darkest times there are always people that care no matter what.

Nobody is worthless, 
Keep your head held high,
Stay strong,
And most importantly
Be
Yourself.

I've never been a victim, but unfortunately I was both observer and I regret not having done anything but now that I'm reporting on the subject I am determined to put a stop to all those around me and so slowly make a change because ''The End of Bullying Begins With Me''

I have not been bullied but I feel sorry for the bullies. Nobody deserves to be bulied. Everyone's the same. We all should be treated the same way.

Shona, 11, Wales

I've been bullied a lot when I was little because I had ADD and I was always pulled out for tests. I believe that this should stop and people should focus more on this situation. Now I try every day to make people happy and give people the life I can get and could never have.

Tess, 15, USA

I know how it feels. I was once "mentally" bullied by my friends when I was in Middle School back in Indonesia, I just moved to the United States few months ago. I never got physically bullied, but the name calling and knowing that people are gossiping about you and talking bad things about you can really make you get depressed. I know how it felt being alone, without having anyone to support you behind your back, I really struggled to stay strong and keeping my head up high. That is why I care, I was a victim and I want kids and teenagers to be able to go to school peacefully.
