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've always been bullied because I'm a 'good girl'. So, I wear a helmet on my bike to school... So, I've lived in Belgium, France and China, SO WHAT? I know that once I fulfill my dreams of acting, I will do everything in my power to join Demi Lovato in this move to stop bullying. Because this IS a serious issue. No matter what others say. :(

I was bullied because of being me I was called ''gay'' one day a girl came up to me and said ''Hi, everyday I see you at this table alone.'' after that we were best friends we did everything together.Then I started getting friends back i was glad we were friends we are still friends to day.

I have been bullied before and i am actually in the current position of being bullied at school and online.  I've tried to talk to counselors about my problem but it doesn't seem to ever help me.. i think about suicide every single day but i am still living. Please Stay strong!

anonymous , 15, California

im constantly being bullied in school every day. Simply because of being me, i try to keep to myself & basically i'm a loner. People don't understand me so they push my buttons and try to get me to crack. Im down to my boiling point but i know better than that. the best way to handle bullying is to take it up between the person who is bullying you & a guidance counselor. The bully may not be happy with the decision but its best for you. don't avoid serious situations like this because it can leas to worse situations like : suicide,depression,& anxiety. Do whats right !

ADELE, 12, MN

too many get bullied for horrible reasons. It might as well be the same as war if you're doing that. We all are different. No one is the exact same. Even twins. So, I care, because we should all just really get along and learn to accept people for who they are. Only when we stand strong and united, can be make this world a better place from bullying and just be happy :)
