2019 Benefit Video: We Have Hope, The Story of PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center

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.

Prevent bullying, promote kindness

I Care Because

i have gotten bullied sence my first day of first grade. the thing is though i try my best to keep going because if i can make it so can others. ya it's hard and you get knocked down but you've got to keep going

KADIE, 15, MOUNDRIDGE KANSAS

I hear the pain and despair from students, and know adults that still hurt from things people did or said in school.  I'm a teacher, and every teacher at every school can make a difference in a student's life by standing up to the bullies.  We have to say no to bullying EVERY TIME, EVERY DAY.  Kids who are bullied can't think about Math or Science.  We want students to THRIVE, not just survive one more day.

I care because i've been bullied to the point where the names got to me so bad, that i treid to end my own life. So many teens kill themselves due to bullying. If everybody stood up against bullies, we'd have no worries. But we're stuck, hurting, terrifed, and voiceless. This site is giving US teens a voice. A voice to stop the bullying. To stop the hurt. To stop all the pain these people are causing. 

Sticks and stones may break your bones, but names can shatter your soul .

Im recentley getting bullied at my school. Like just the other day someone gave me a threat online that i was goanna get it and another person said that they want to hurt me phiscally. Theres so much drama at my school that needs to be handled. Even though im in a younger grade i agree bullying needs to be taken care of. Because im sick and tired of it.
