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

My little sister is bullied at school because she is very small and underweight for her age. She doesn't have a disorder or anything, but she has trouble paying attention in class, so she has to take these pills that make her not want to eat. She's going to be 13 this month and she is only 4'9" and about 60 lbs. She only has one or two friends, and she often comes home with scrapes and bruises on her knees from being pushed down in the hallways. She never seems to see who is doing these things to her, so she just keeps quiet. It's up to the school to crack down on this issue so in instances like these, bullying victims can be brought to justice.

Bullying of all forms is not right. Whether it's with abilities, gender, race, beliefs, hobbies, or looks. Everyone has something alike. We are all humans, and we have feelings

I think bullying is wrong because it hurts people feelings.

My friends and I used to bully a girl that we didn't like in 5th grade. Things changed the next year. In 6th grade, I was the victim of bullying. I felt terrible and I wanted to take back everything I said to that poor girl in 5th grade. If I could go back in time, i'd change the way I treated the girl.

I've never been physicaly bullied, but when i was younger I would always get verbaly bullied! I don't know how bullys can live with themselves kn owing they hurt someone in anyway! I think this is a very horrible way to live being hurt everyday! My mom would tell me when I was younger, "Just ignore them, sonner or later they will stop." But now i know that it's ok to tell an adult to help you! My little sister sometimes comes home crying because she is being bullied(verbaly), and i get so Angry! I want to stop bullying because It's NOT right and It doesn't feel good!
