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 was bullied. I know the feeling I use to get when I walked into that school. The feeling like a rock dropped from my throat to the bottom of my stomach. I remember the words they called me. Even tho it's been 3 years since I was in grade 10, I can recall every harsh word that was said to me. Feeling like I wasn't worth anything and I was useless. Telling my parents I had missed the bus when they heard I wasn't at school, because there were just some days I couldn't handle it . I feel for everyone who's going through that right now. But know there is light at the end of the tunnel. Even when it seems your whole worlds in darkness, I promise there will be someone who will bring you a candle. Just wait. Know you are beautiful and someone out there loves you....for you. 

Ashley, 18, Canada

I've been bullied since my 1st day of kindergarten. Whether it was of my looks, ethnicity , or the way I acted. I learned that not everyone is willing to help and some people might not even want to hear you out but I will and I'm here to fight against bullying. I went into a deep depression that just recently ended after a stint in the pscyhiatric hospital and after an attempted suicide and years of abusing myself. I know now that if no-one wants to help then you need to help yourself first, I'm not saying that no-one will help you but try to get help no matter what but if you do not succeed then you have to be the first to stand up and speak out! Not just for yourself but also for the people all around the world that are bullied each and everyday!

Dieudline the Haitian, 16, GA

Bullying is a HUGE issue at my school. Its everywere, and it bothers me alot. I speak up for a lot of kids, but it doesnt help. I want to do a speech or write an online article on our school website on the effects and causes of bullying and why it hurts. Cyber, verbal and physical. Its all wrong, ! 

Tiffany , 14, Indiana

This is to Amber, I am 14 years old and having a rough time to. I started cutting in 6th grade because my Aunt who raised me died. Ever since then I was a cutter until April 14, I was in 7th grade I am now in 8th grade and have not cut in a little while, every once and a while I cut because of the things people at school say to me. I have gotten made fun of for my weight and my looks. You just have to learn things to cope with. I am so sorry to hear about your mother. And if we wnet to the same school I would help you stand up for your self because i COMPETLY DISAGREE with the things people say.
