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.

I Care Because

 I care because I know many people who are bullied. My friend Brady has been bullied close to every day at school, since second grade. It is summer, and we are going into 8th grade. He is sad a lot, and I can see right through his plastic smile. Another friend and I saw the movie Bully, and it made me cry. We are starting a permanent anti-bullying program at school. I encourage you to see Bully. Or start an anti-bully thing at school.Remember, the end of bullying begins with us.

i care because i was bullied once. Every so often i get bullied by the same people. i am so thankful for my friends but i know that even when their there, the bullies still bully me behind my back. I get a sick feeling whenever i witness bullying, i think its crazy and it needs to be stopped. i would do ANYTHING to stop bullying and thats why im signing the petetion. I hope we can make a difference in this world. i am willing to make this world a safe and fun place to live in.

I know what it's like to be bullied. I was bullied growing up because I was never good enough, pretty enough, thin enough, etc.
They say that people who bully others do it because they're insecure and it makes them feel more confident. I don't understand how. They (bullies) know what it's like to feel deeply insecure so how does knowing that you're making other people feel just like you do make you feel better about yourself?

Karla, 16, Alabama

I was cyber bullied, verbally bullied, and sometimes physically bullied because I went through pubery early. I was abandoned by all the people I thought were my friends and I hated it. I didn't go to an adult and I regret that. I care because I don't ever want anyone to feel all the pain and suffering I had to go through. I care because I want people to know that they aren't alone. That's it is okay to be different, because you are you and that is beautiful.

I'm very insecure with myself now. I've always been picked on by the mean, popular girls because it's one of their "rules." If you're not mean to Falon, you get kicked out of the group. They turned a lot of people against me, and now I only have one friend. I hate school because of these girls. I've expirienced everything from cyberbullying to being beat up, and the teachers do nothing. So I feel bad for anyone else who gets bullied. No one deaserves this.
