PACER is supportive of all persons who desire to be free and safe in their own communities. We are aware of the history of racism and social injustice in this country that needs to be changed. The tragic death of Mr. Floyd has highlighted the injustices in our country. We know that Black children and their families experience significant disparities in education, health, housing, and the justice system. We will work to ensure just systems for all families. We can do better.

I Care Because

People think I'm different because I'm not exactly like them. They think I'm weird. They make fun of my clothes, my thinking, everything. i've been bullied since I was 11 years old, now I'm 18. 
I grew up without a father at my side, I was insecure. Bullying should stop. It's worldwide problem and we might be different, which is cool, but no one should be considered weird. Afterall, we're all just humans.

Bullying ruined my life. I look I'm okay now, but I will never have my childhood back. At the age of 6, I declared to my classroom I wanted to kill myself. I now realize that wasn't a "normal" thing. No one should go through this. Everyone deserves kindness.
