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, my lil brother who is a special child was bullied, i love my little brother. and i can't do anything cause i'm far from him and i really want to protect my brother from bullies, my lil brother was love in school, my family and his friends. i care for those who are being bullied like my kid brother, teachers and the school faculty members should do something about it. one of his classmates hit his head on the table, and i felt horrible just hearing about it. hope someone can do something. i can't just sit here and do nothing.

i got bullied when i was younger and know i'm getting bullied ans i don't have a lot of friends. when i was younger i was populer but then my friends changed and i became the target they call me names  and stuff. i don't get to be happy at school so i care for people like me  so if they call you name fight for you'r rights :)

Nobody has the right to piont out anyone elses flaws. Just because you have the right of speech does not give you the right to insult someone or hurt someone in any way. It is wrong. 

Megan, 15, Louisiana

Beacause I was once  a bully and I regret doing it. I had to do a powerpoint about bullying then I realized how bad it was so I stoped, beacause i felt really bad.

Izzy Parker, 25, Teaxas

Ever since I started middle school, it has been hard for me socially. I have a type of Autism and occasionally get the "you're so cool (not)"  behavior from girls and boys. Bullying is a serious problem at my school and no one has established a Bullying prevention program. This year I intend to fix this problem with the help and support of the friends I trust and the Teachers I admire.
