New! Let’s Talk About Bullying and Disability

Information will be featured throughout November about disability-based bullying. Everyone is invited to get involved by sharing how they view the intersection between bullying and disability. The idea is using the medium of your choice, such as video, art, or written or spoken word — to respond to the question, “What do you want everyone to know about bullying and disability?”

Here’s how to get involved!

Thank You

I Care Because

I have been bullied, I have dealt with the pain.. I have been called things, I have been pushed around and I have first hand cried myself to sleep at night. I will not tolerate anyone who bullies others.

Kaitlyn, 17, Minnesota

I know how it feels being bullied. And I want it to be over and i'm tired of everyone bullying me. Making fun of me, throwing my homework on the floor and calling me a freak. I been bullied for three years and i cant  take it anymore. I'm losing my focus. Nobody sits around me, doesnt even talk to me, and they talk behind my back. I want to make a change about this. One day I will just forget about the bullying moments.

I was a cheerleader in high school. It was my best friend who bullied me. She turned all of my friends along with everyone else against me. I would walk down the hallway with them shouting things at me. They made up lies. I wanted to die. I hated life. I couldn't see tomorrow. I eventually told my mom. She got me a counselor. It helped, a little. I now am here six months after the bullying started because I was strong and I had my mom by my side the whole time. I started high school being popular with tons of friends. I ended the school year with one friend. I am strong and no one should have that power over me.

Katie, 15, Illinois

people get bullied all the time and it hurts me inside from seeing it happen. It's unacceptable and horrible!

Kim Nguyen, 14, AB

I used to drive school bus and still remember also being a student in high school.  I know for fact that when children are being bullied, most of the adults around know about it.  Kids talk and the adults hear.  Dont let them fool you.  I never allowed a child being mistreated on any of my buses but if you try to intervene, school faculty will not back you.  Sometimes adults are petty enough to enjoy such things.  You really need to get a law passed making every adult around the child, especially in school liable for this action.  I mean it.  Dont let the adults fool you.
