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 care because I used to be a bully in elementary and I seen how I changed those people's life. In middle school I was normal and did not bully anyone. In high school I was bullied, a lot. I was confused why anyone would want to be mean to me when I was always so nice. The person I bullied the most is now my best friend. DONT BULLY

Teasia, 16, Michigan

I have been bullied for a very long time now and I have not really told anyone about it yet. I feel as if people were to understan what I'm alway thinking about or what I have to go to school with every day, then they would stop. I have a long story of things that happened to me but I think kids and parents should be more accepting of the Lgbtq+ communitey. Just because I'm bisexual doesn't mean that I'm much more different than every other teen. (Sorry if I didn't spell some thing right)

Sarah, 13, Kentucky

I've been bullied before and it has made me do some things that I would not like to say. But, I know how it feels and others shouldn't have to feel such meanness for doing nothing. I stand up to bullying. 

Brianna, 13, Indiana

I care becasue my whole life i have been bullied because of my height and my love for reading and same with my sister except she was bullied because people made fun of her looks and she tried to commute suicide and so i have 3 word 'Make It Stop."

Joshua, 12, Washington state

I'm 6'-10" and weigh 300 pounds, but even I was bullied growing up. Older kids picked on me, so I picked on others. Looking back, what hurt the most was BEING a bully. Speak up. Reach Out. Be a friend.

Jim, 51, Tifton, GA

I'v been bullied and trust me, i know how it feels to want to fit in, but some people just take it too far. People have lost their lives to relentless bullies. If i share my personal experiences my comment would go on for century, but i just wanted to remind everyone out there who's been bullied that your not alone. You are beautiful in your own way and bullies just want to take that away from you so don't let them.

Imaan, 13, CA

i was bullied all the time when i first started school i was called names, i got beat up, among other things and I hated going to school. until 6th grade when i stood up to a group of kids that hurt my sister and made her cry. when that happend i decided that enough was enough. im not going to stand by and let this happen anyone. if i can do something i will
to all the kid still being bullied i say; stay strong and keep living everyday it gets better! 
peace!!!
